I live in LA and enjoy day hikes, backpacking, rock climbing, and mountaineering.

In #12 you say "rappell down," but are you really referring to rapping off or to being lowered?

@anatolyg: I'm talking about leading, and leaving a top-rope in place after I'm done.

@AndrewWelch: Tarps work in the rain. They're meant to keep the rain off, and they do that.

Method 2 looks like a nice idea for saving your crotch! If you didn't do the art yourself, you might want to credit the source.

I don't think it's a good idea to encourage other people to try something like this.

@Steed: In fact, we are usually using 1 carabiner in place of A and two carabiners at C, gates flipped, to make sure at least one gate will not get opened by the passing rope. Hmm... by gates "flipped," do you mean not putting the spines side by side, or do you mean spines side by side but gates forming an X? All the sources of information I listed in the answer say to put C and D not opposed. This would be because the rope should be passing over the spines, not the gates.
