comment Preventing cross-loading on belay carabiners
@Felix Thanks for pointing that out. I use an ATC and a DMM Oval for belay, but it's always good to know how to use other systems correctly if needed!

comment Can you use a rope that has been in storage for a few years?
Could you add a link to one of the Safety Research Group reports? Otherwise this answer is spot on.

comment Pink Winter Sleeping Bags
I don't know. In this case the product seems to be discontinued. I think an argument could be made for closing or even deleting this question since it was specific to a certain time. (You would not lose any reputation points if this were done because of the age of the post.)

comment How to estimate is the branch thick enough to stand on it?
Great question, but I don't know if you'll get a well qualified answer here. I suggest asking professional arborists. Of course they should also be connected with a rope, but they should at least have experience with what does and does not hold weight, be able to recognize a rotten branch, etc.
