@Glenn I was mistaken. The image comes from mountaineeringmethodology.com/mistakes-when-belaying -- I shall include this in an edit.

@Glenn You're right. That isn't my picture however, it's Petzl's. I link the page it came from.

comment How to wash a foam helmet?
How old is old? Foam helmets are supposed to be replaced after five years apparently.

comment Methods for taping injured wrists
@Liam My answer is primarily about "tape gloves" the question clear includes this subject. "For example: I'm having intermittent wrist pain. How can I supportively tape it, yet not restrict it too much, and also not completely cover the palm." Other answers are welcome! Voting to close.

comment How to Clean Rock-Climbing Shoes
I haven't tried this but I am somewhat skeptical about it. Certainly freezing in a household freezer will not kill all bacteria; freezing does not sterilize water for example. Perhaps the primary odor-causing ones are not freeze resistant? I also worry that freezing would keep them from drying properly. Not a problem if you rotate a number of pairs of shoes but fairly important if you climb often in the same pair. Could you give more details of your personal experience with this method?

comment What is a bloquers?
@imsodin While still not ideal for fall arrest the rockGrab/Microcender is far better for this than a toothed device like the Tibloc or Micro Traxion which will quickly shear the sheath or worse. Please see: (1804). I can provide other references if you doubt that one.

comment What is a bloquers?
I am not certain they would be called "bloquers" but in addition to the devices listed above are the toothless cammed rope clamps such as the Rock Exotica rockGrab and Petzl Microcender (a licensed version of the former I believe). These weigh more but they are safer too as they won't cut your rope.
