If you are trad climbing or ice climbing, you will appreciate the extra length, although we typically prefer 9.8 diameter for serious objectives. If you are sport climbing, it will never be a negative issue, so no reason to cut. Newer sport climbs will require the extra length. I would hesitate to cut a perfectly good rope myself (if you climb much in the backcountry, you will find plenty of opportunity to cut it later). You paid for the 70m, I would keep it that way. Shipping should be about $7, the price difference should be $25-$40.

Is it worth the shipping cost to send it back to get the 60M rope or can I just take it to REI or somewhere that can cut the rope to length? Or is this something I can do my self at home? TIA
