Title: ? Rope lengths for Scanty Lardos ?
Post by: topcat on October 09, 2021, 07:56:05 pm
Anyone know the rope lengths for Scanty Lardos?

I don't particularly  need the topo but number of krabs would be useful too.

Cheers

30m 40m and 20m in that order. 17 krabs assuming you tie direct to the first anchor on each pitch.

 if you don't have the topo, you should know you should avoid a direct descent of the 3rd (biggest pitch) and instead traverse about a meter down onto a wide ledge.

Many thanks for this information.   We put it to good use and had a grand trip earlier this week.
