hey all

so I have yet to go to the Riverside Quarry, but I'm really interested.

I've heard that a lot of the routes are long, maybe too long to rappel with a 60 meter rope. Are any routes multi-pitch? What length rope is standard?

A 60m rope will work on most climbs there, but there are many rope stretchers where a 70m is definitely handy. Remember to tie a knot at the end of your 60, as most routes are approx. 90-100ft. Yes, there are some multi-pitch routes, but not many, and they aren't as frequently travelled. Of the routes that are significantly longer that 100ft, many are done in a single pitch with 2 different sets of Rap anchors, so you can L-P-L.

Keep your head up for the new guidebook, coming out in about a month, or you can get your paws on one early, if you contact Loiue Anderson.
