Dirk, those look like twin ropes, if I'm not mistaken. How did you like leading with them ?

Those are actually half ropes. On this climb we clipped both of them in each piece of pro, as the rope drag wasn't really and issue.

Leading typically wasn't an issue. Belaying was more of a pain-in-the-ass than with a single, but I think that they are a good idea. I just ordered some half ropes. Looking forward to getting them!
