comment How dangerous is it to fall 3 meters when lead climbing?
Note: when you fall while clipping in, you fall 3m to the previous anchor + 3m to the lower anchor because you have 3m of "free" rope + some distance due to rope elasticity.

comment Will the benefit of an axe outweigh the drawbacks and win over a large knife?
A saw is indeed a very good choice for individual camping: it is lighter, faster and easier to use then an axe. If your group is >1 people, you can also use a "string" saw like this one: rei.com/product/775079/…

comment Are there 1-person 4-season tents?
@MarkE, oh, I'm not suggesting any model, just found something under "4 season" in Ferrino catalogue (sorry, I have no time for a better market analysis). The best thing would be to find something similar, but with 2 canvas.

comment Why do many climbers appear to not trust their belay loops?
@WedaPashi, exactly. But now you can trust manuals from Petzl/BD/etc, which allow and encourge using belay loop without additional backup.

@PaulIrofti, consider asking on Physical Fitness SE (fitness.stackexchange.com), it's wisited by more runners, and you question almost doesn't concern Outdoors at all.
