BC indicates "yes" as to the center marking. Can anyone confirm that this one has the center marked?

Responded on

Gjw,
The Beal Ice Line is indeed centermarked. This doesn't make a whole lot of sense, since you'll likely be climbing with two half ropes and therefore tying the two together for abseiling. Butnonetheless, it does have the center marked.

Micah, the center marking can be useful for estimating how much rope is left (and when the leader should look for a good belay location).
