Love doubles for a team of 3.

A 70m single is a tad more bail/rap insurance than a shorter single, lighter than any doubles. A 7mm secondary cord is pretty darn small, tho. (EDK works fab.) You could lighten it up further with a 7mm shortie if the raps are not steep and you can even out the ends en route rapping. Be extra careful.

Mammut Serenity plus a 7mm (or even smaller, I'm pretty sure Dean rapped Cerro Torre with a doubled 5mm) is my pick for heli-light and full capability. Granted, no advantage of alternate clipping. The second can carry the 7mm coiled pretty easily.
