(hay espanol abajo si prefieres leerlo)

Hey y'all,
I came to Mexico (DF) primarily to work and I've only brought bare minimum gear for local cragging.
I may have a chance to visit EPC soon (work related...but I'll def make time to climb!!) but...I've only got a 50m rope... :(

Since i've got a nice 60m at home in the states, i'm not stoked to buy another rope.

Are there any single pitches that can safely be done on a 50? Any multy pitches?
thanks a lot y'all.

gracias,
que te vaya bien,
-henry

No, a 50m rope is pretty much worthless in the Potrero. Look me up when you get here (at Tami's Cafe) and I can lend you a 60m rope.

70m is better.

Dont try to make any climb with a 50 metrs rope with out knowing the distance down, you can became stuck or have an accident. There are a lot of routes in EPC where not even a 60 meters rope is enought.

And rembember to use your brain bucket.
Have a lot of fun.

there are also climbs where a 70M rope is not enough.
