Do I need rope(s)?
I would suggest you bring 25 m of a sturdy nylon rope or cord. One that is the rated for weight more than the heaviest person potential going to use it, because the three most common uses that a rope will find its self preforming on the west coast trail is. lashing a tarp, hanging food and/or lifting a person (at surge channels, steep elevation changes).
Exercise caution when using a trail found rope. Inspect it for frays or tears, etc.We did find two general use ropes during the trail. One assisting trekkers of the climbing a bordwalk section by the Nit Nat Narrows. *// insert pic //
