My climbing partner and I would like to do some 35M routes, but our ropes are only 60M long.
I am really fighting the urge to be a smart-ass here......but I will try to be helpful anyway Tongue
After re-reading your posts, I am going to assume that you are in fact planning on toproping....correct?
If you are, then knotting the ropes together with a double fisherman's is the correct thing to do!
Edit....and yes, if you are leading (in which case I am scared that you don't already know the answer to your own question), time2clmb did give the correct answer.

...........okay, I can't resist it anymore........
Why are you worried about the ATC?
You do realise that you do not have to tie into the absolute end of a rope, right!?
