I've much appreciated your suggestions for climbing harnesses. The Petzl Adjama I got, based on recommendations here, is working well.
Next up, i'm looking at options for my first climbing rope. It will be used mostly for Sierra climbs (rock and snow/ice), glacier crossings, and probably local stuff like Tahquitz and Joshua Tree. Although weight is a concern, i'd like something versatile, probably in the 9.2-9.8 range, and standard 60m.
The Mammut 'Infinity' sounds good, but I thought it could be useful to ask you who have experience for your suggestions. Thanks in advance!
