At 37 g per meter or 1.29 oz per yard, it takes little space, but it holds the load. On snow patches, steep passages, mountain walking and ski-mountaneering, its properties add to your security. Other facts: 36 % of dynamic elongation, 1.3 % of sheath slippage, 32 bobbins. Also available in 30 m (98 ft 5.1 in) and 48 m (157 ft 5.8 in) lengths (with markings each 12 m or 39 ft 4.4 in to assist tieing-in).

20 m equals to 65 ft 7.4 in. Prices are those in Spain.

Great rope at least until have had a hard fall, I've used this rope only for a team of 3-4 climbers over easy glaciers. It was not a very safe case: for mountain and icefall use, clipping 2 strands is essential. It's advisable to read the instruction booklet before use and be learnt about rope methods.

I suggest to use the 30 m rope.

20 metres can be too short.

This rope isn't an half rope. Don't use it climbing on rock or ice

.... for being a twin rope.
Very nice for snow walking, easy glacier crossing and ski-touring. Agree with pippo52 : better to have the 30m.
