As a mark of fitness, the coach says we should be able to climb up a rope 4 - 5 times without stopping. What length/height should the rope be? I am going to get one soon, and I want to make sure I have the right length.

15 feet tends to be the common height for ascents during the WODs. Thats as much as I know. It also happens to be the height I have found at every gym that has any that I've been to in this area by any how.

Wow what a crappy sentence I hope you can figure out what that means!

15', although if you don't have the space to put one that length, get shorter and just climb it more (I have seen 5' ones that require you to sit on the floor and use only your arms)

Is there a regulation/competition length? I'm gonna be building some sort of structure in my backyard to hang a rope from, or just hang it from a tree limb, and I want to have one that's comp. length.

Looks like I won't be making any structure to hold a 20+ foot rope out of wood...
