comment Using a Girth Hitch in Alpine Draws
That is the reason I was given before. Why don't you edit your answer to describe that instead and include a reference to the Petzl manual?

comment Using a Girth Hitch in Alpine Draws
Welcome to the site and thank you for your answer. However can you provide additional support for this statement? I was given a different explanation for why the top carabiner in a quickdraw does/should not have a rubber keeper.

@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?
