comment What order of response time can I expect if I hit the “911” button on my SPOT Satellite Personal Tracker?
I searched through the ANAM database but didn't find anything with a very detailed timeline involving locator beacons so far.

Just an aside, I've backpacked in the Bear Lakes Basin area and been over Italy Pass. Beautiful area!

comment Most common avoidable reasons for climbing accidents?
Latest ANAM stats I could find are from 2007: c535846.r46.cf2.rackcdn.com/anam_2007.pdf. Climbing unroped, exceeding abilities, inadequate protection are the top 3. Basically, being avoidably in the wrong place without the right skills.

comment Avoiding a “ding-dong” when lead belaying in the gym?
This seems to me the most obvious answer. Every gym I've climbed in (admittedly not very many though) has offered floor anchors so that climbing partners with imbalanced weights can still climb safely. I would definitely inquire as to whether they can be installed.
