The AAI blog has a great discussion about how much rope you should have between climbers when crossing glaciers in the Cascades. Note that these distances should be increased if you are climbing in a range with larger glaciers. If you are interested in glacier travel, it's a worthy read.

Good post Jim, I like the simple arm measurement...I might actually remember it!

seems a simple way to remember would be the number of people + the arm lengths = 10

While I agree that the arm length recommendations are useful, my wingspan is too short to follow his numbers exactly. Something to keep in mind.

Jim, I did the math with my 5 ft wingspan, and the numbers just add up to one more arm length, so the equation turns into 11-number of people= number of arm lengths.
