comment Yosemite in late March a good idea?
Make sure you have warm gear that can keep you dry. Might be a great time to beat the crowds. Be advised that even though it might be raining, getting a tent spot on the weekend is unlikely, though you should check the reservation site. Have a backup plan for where you are staying at night if all reservations are taken.

comment Is the ACE 1 Ultra-Clean Biomass Cookstove too good to be true?
Since you ask for similar systems out there: I have received one of these bioliteenergy.com/products/biolite-campstove for christmas a few years back. I must say I haven't used it much, because I am so used to my liquid fuel system and I often go into areas where you are not allowed to burn any biomass, so I can't give you a review. I normally carry a battery pack that can give my iPhone 6 charges. Together with my stove and fuel the weight is about the same, at least for up to 10 day trips.

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.

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!
