Sorry this seems like a slightly vague question but i'm thinking of buying a rope and am not sure what length to get? I do all types of climbing and don't really want to limit myself by which rope I have, I also considered maybe getting half ropes. would really appreciate any help thanks!

Hi Emil, If intend to do a lot of traditional climbing routes then we would recommend two half ropes. As for length, 60m should cover you for everything apart from very long sport pitches (but always tie a knot in the end of your rope if your even the slightest bit unsure). If you are using half ropes then you may get away with two 50m ropes but the extra 10m can become a very welcome bonus if you are trying to escape a multi-pitch route quickly. Hope that helps, Dave
