There are three basic types of dynamic mountain ropes, each designed for
different activities and tested according to different standards
More info about half ropes or double ropes as they are know.
Half ropes, with regard to strength and weight, lie between single and twin ropes. They only offer standard safety when they are used as a pair. But here you have the choice between twin rope technique, where both ropes run parallel through the protection and half rope technique, where the «left» and «right» ropes run separately through different protection points. This technique allows friction to be reduced in the case where protection points are widely spread and reduces impact force.
This is of benefit when climbing traditionally protected routes. A belay method which enables the independent control of each rope must be used. Half ropes are tested singly with a 55 kg mass and must withstand five standard falls. They come in diameters from 8 to 9 mm and weigh 41 to 55 grams per meter. In single strand form they are suitable to belay two seconds.
