If you are on a limited budget and are only going to have one rope, I would probably stick with a 60m. You will probably have to special order a 70 whereas you can usually find a 60 on sale.

Between my main partner and I, we have a lot of ropes including a superskinny 70 and a fat 70. For alpine and/or easy moderate multi-pitch we take the skinny 70. It is nice to occasionally link pitches and I rarely carry a second rap rope. Most raps are 35 meters or less and if need be, we can build a rap anchor.

The fat 70 is for cragging. It is an unnecessary luxury, but there are a significant number of routes out there that you can TR/lower from using a single 70 instead of two 60s.
