Hi Chaps,
usually hang out on the chainsaw side, but have been doing a bit of climbing too.

Have a 60m length of New England Tachyon ash 11.5 with a bit of damage to it around the middle of the rope.

should I retire it, or is it still ok to climb on.

Pics attached.

Appreciate the advice.

Rope manufacturers typically have guidelines of when to retire ropes.
I've retired ropes for less damage than that. Make two shorter ropes from it and get a new climbing line IMO. Then you wont be thinking about it. For me, peace of mind is worth more than a new rope.
