    Climbers: Petzl PUR line

    I ordered a 200m piece and can part it out. I just want one 65m section. Has anyone been looking for one of these for less? I'm thinking ~$130 per 65m section.

    If there's interest PM me and I'll let you know when it arrives.

    i assume if you’re chopping a 65m haul line you’re climbing on 60m ropes?

    it always seems like an unusual size to me.

    PUR is more of a tagline for doing full 60 rappels, 65m because it’s hyperstatic and the dynamic climbing rope will elongate that much on a full length rappel….as i understand it.

    it just seems like everyone climbs on 70s, so wouldn’t you want a 75m for a tag or hauling?

    Ah, I see; perhaps! I’m not much of a climber but have liked 60 for alpine rambles due to weight and rope management, 70 seemed like overkill

    The situations in which one would use a PUR line overlap much more with 60m rope situations (alpine, long routes where rappels are possible, etc). 70m ropes are great for sport (required on some routes), but not as common on long trad routes as that requires carrying not only 10m more rope, but the accompanying 3-5 more pieces of pro.

    Anyway, I don't have this thing in hand yet, but mags get first crack at it. Don't make me post it on MP.
