comment Rappelling in the Rain
+1 -- Since you may have experience with this do new ropes (which are slicker and have fresher dry treatment) become more slippery than older ropes? That would be my primary concern, having not yet had to rappel in the rain.

comment Methods for taping hands, wrists, and fingers for climbing?
@theJollySin I've had the same problem and yet I have no solution other than shaving your wrists. :-p The backs of the hands can be done by putting tape sticky side to sticky side but you still have to tape these on somehow. I suppose you could put something under the tape but I fear the tape would have to be very tight to keep from sliding up your hand. Maybe you could get away with Coban™ over clean skin, under the tape, but I haven't tried.

comment How can I acclimatize to cold?
@theJollySin If you watch the "Daredevils" video you'll see that he sits is very cold water (for about 45 minutes if I recall) as a conditioning method, not just a stunt. He's apparently being doing this for years. He'll slip out at night to soak for a while in the cold river near his house, etc. Sounds miserable to me but apparently it, among other things, has conditioned body and mind in an unusual way. I'll look for some other references to his training a bit later.
