comment what to do with the lap coiled rope if the belayer wishes to lead consecutive pitches
Since I don't have practical experience with this yet I'll just post a comment with a discussion link.

comment How tight should the line be kept for toproping?
Everything here is familiar to me except for: "An inexperienced climber might want to be kept tight just having cleared a roof with a lot of rope out, which would result in face and roof meeting with great force." Would you elaborate?

comment Best type of rope for glacier travel?
@Steed I don't think I can agree with that advice for the reason described here. The sheath of a skinny single is just too thin, and quoting: "People also need to recognize that even though these are single ropes, and even though the diameter is larger than our Genesis half ropes, under conditions where the main danger is cutting or abrasion the thicker rope might actually be LESS durable and have a lower safety margin."
