What Rope (UK)?

What rope should I get for a first rope? What I've read suggests I should go single in the 9.5mm-10.5mm thickness region and 60m in length. Is this about right?

How much should I pay for this and where could I get it (I'm in the UK)?

I found this one, it was the cheapest on the page though:

http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/edelrid-10mm-python-climbing-rope-60m-p96347

Is this any good and why is it cheapr than the others (half the cost of some other similar ones)?

Sorry it's a lot of questions, any help on any of them would be great.

10mm+ and cheap ... Length depends on yr area

The tendon smart 10 mm 60m is what i recommend for beginners ....

U can buy it in the uk for about 80Ģ
