Rope weirdness, alpine-esque- Using a 35m thin static line and a 35 m dynamic rope instead of a 70m?

Anybody done this? I got rid of some ropes (donated to climbxela.com ) and now only have a 35m dynamic for climbing and a 35m 7mil static tag line.

Thinking about climbing multi pitch like this.

Do alpine gals/guys do this?

Obviously this adds pitches, but just wondering if it's been done and if anybody has any input.

There's thise ice gully on North Peak in the Sierras, usually about 4-5 pitches, just a few where you would want a rope.
Took an 8mil 30 meter, and a few Ti screws, worked great.
More pitches, but since we were always on the move, we were warmer, and the rack weighed nothing

That's my favored combo for a local solo scramble loop - 4 hours involving three raps: 30+m, 30m, and 25m.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
