Legends used half hopes.
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.
