comment What is the correct way to attach a rope to a harness with carabiners?
@ShemSeger: As I said, when I was leading ropes courses, we had to double up on screw-gate carabiners. If I remember correctly we where operating under the guidelines of the ACCT. I don't know if they still require this, but that was the case about 6 years ago.

@ShemSeger: It sounds like Petzl wants us to use two carabiners: prcainfo.org/advisories/…

comment What is the correct way to attach a rope to a harness with carabiners?
@ShemSeger: I have only ever dealt with screw-gates where carabiners are used instead of tying in directly (ropes course). We even had to use steel carabiners... . Good to know that auto-lockers of the type you mention are approved to be used that way!

comment How can I recuperate between two long walks
@PhilMJones: Preparing correctly sets you up for faster recuperation, I therefore deemed those aspects of my answer relevant. If you are already doing all that, great! Maybe my remarks will be useful to someone in the future. I am glad to hear that you are leaving extra weight at home. I have seen people lug all kinds of stuff on short hikes!
