Is there anyway to get up a route that is longer than the half way mark on your rope? My climbing partner and I would like to do some 35M routes, but our ropes are only 60M long. Is there anyway to tie the 2 together and still be able to belay properly? I know the Fisherman's knot well, but how do you work it with your ATC?

No, don't tie two ropes together. Get a rope of proper length.

Edit: Oh damn, too late.

Are these routes you're taking about the first pitch of a multipitch climb? Also, could you just walk off the top?
