long line

I've made a rescue on the face of a mountain with a 980ft line. About 270ft of winch, plus 710 of fixed rope. Two person recovered.
Other times, for material transport, with about 950-1000ft of steel rope.
Thousand of times with 300-330ft.
Take your time, be relaxed, nothing exceptional.

In this pic you can see only the 710ft of rope because the winch cable was completely retracted, after the rescue
