Hi all

I know this is an odd question, but I have a reason for asking it.

If you could only have ONE burning rope rig, how long would it be, from your connection at the bottom to the crane (or whatever) point at the top? With the burning section, baffles, and possibly a none burning section in between.

I know that different heights, and other factors effect length. For instance if I am going up 100 foot I would prefer say, a 10 foot rope with 6 feet of that soaked in fuel, at lower heights (say 25 foot on a small site crane) I might only have a 6 foot rope with 3 - 4 feet actually soaked and burning.

However, I know I am doing a burning rope in China when I next go, I need to keep everything I pack to a minimum, and I want to make up my rope before I go. Not get it over there. But, I won't know exactly what height until the day before the stunt, and after I arrive. So, I can only take one rope! I know this sounds extreme, but packing an act, and 2 weeks worth of clothes etc into just 20kg of luggage allowance is almost impossible. Everything has to be stripped down to the bare minimum.
