comment “Used” top rope when bouldering
Nice answer, +1. I'll edit my own answer to address the issues raised about the sheath. I've corrected the incorrect sentence that you quoted in your second paragraph.

comment When should I retire my rope
Short falls with little rope out (in a gym) may have a higher fall factor than longer falls with a lot of rope out (outdoors). But the maximum fall factor you can get in the gym is 1, because the belay station is on the ground and it's not possible to fall past the belay station.

comment What is SPF in sunscreen cream?
At very high SPF levels, the limitation is probably just how long the stuff will stay on your skin. It's going to come off as you sweat, wash your hands, etc. It also matters how much you apply. I have a lot of summit victory pictures where I look like a dork because I have sunscreen caked on my face unevenly.

comment Maxpedition Condor 2 unresolved questions
Considering that outdoors.SE is close to being a ghost town, I don't think we should be going out of our way to turn away new users who ask reasonable questions.

comment Anchor without cordelette?
Cool technique! I don't see any negatives, except maybe that the master point ends up being a little messy.
