well personally id rather trust the manufacturer than some random RCer

which is why i asked them directly rather than going through the RC "yur gonna die" gongshow

i would think mammut would know what they are doing after 151 years in the climbing business


Hello (deleted),

you had a question on your Mammut rope Phoenix 8mm and whether it can be used in twin and half rope technique in one single pitch. This is the case, you can always clip the two rope strands as twins, then split them as doubles, join again etc. This is exactly the advantage of half ropes compared to twin ropes where you always need to clip both ropes.

Hope this helps you,
best regards from Switzerland,


Freundliche Grüsse / Kind regards

The guy that replied is likely just some grunt from marketing. If you spoke to the senior R&D engineer for Mammut I bet he would tell you something different. Send an e-mail to both Bluewater and Sterling, ask to speak to an engineer, then ask the question again. I bet you will get a different answer.
