Scanty Lardos cave rope lengths.
« on: April 21, 2021, 02:00:22 pm »
Hi all,
Does anyone know the rope lengths required for SLC?
I can see pitch depths quoted on the survey. However, I have been informed the cave has been P bolted therefore the pitch depth may differ from the rope lengths considerably.
Cheers.

From what I recall, the rope lengths have not changed much, when we did it, except the last pitch as that is a new hang so I would add 5 meters to that on definately (caution the new hang was rather loose half way down, I gardened it a bit when I went down as apparently we were the first people to try out the new hang).

I believe they are producing and updated topo at some point soon.

If you add 5m to all pitch lengths to be sure, I think you will be fine.

Oh just looked at that survey it don't have the old rope lengths on either, in that case then:

25m for first (climb) and second pitch. Or just 15m if free climbing first drop.
45m for third pitch (as that involves a lot of traversing).
25m for the last pitch.
