I think seven makes better sense. I would imagine if you have a 15' rope, that 15x3=45 towel pullups. 45 towel pullups is much tougher than one rope ascension. Being 5'6", a 15' rope climb turns into a 8-10' rope climb (depending on how far up I reach), plus in the rope climb you can use your legs, towel you can't.

Seven also seems to match what Neil said that 3 ground to stands is about 1 rope climb--although you use your legs in a different fashion there.
