First ascents of most classic climbs used half ropes. That was just the standard way back then, and most of the longer multi-pitches and full-blown mountaineering missions are still ideal for half ropes. For example, Beal's Legend Climbing Rope packs light and compact for long approaches, and still gives a good grip in case your climber goes down.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
