In this category, you will find twin ropes. Twin ropes may only be used in double strands, so that both strands are always attached in parallel to the intermediate anchor points. The ambitious climber has extra safety reserves thanks to the redundant use of two ropes, especially in the event of possible rockfall or excessive stress on sharp edges during alpine climbing in difficult terrain or during ice and mixed climbing. Unlike single rope technique, twin rope technique allows for rappelling over the full length of the rope. With modern ropes, there is no longer a distinction between half ropes and twin ropes, as most ropes are approved and certified for use as both twin ropes and half ropes. However, climbing technique remains important. Please be mindful when purchasing ropes that are only approved as twin ropes.
