comment Cleaning the inside of a backpack
When trying to get rid of odors, I usually let it dry in direct sunlight. Works for me, but I must add that I don't have anything to back up this claim.

comment Why are indoor climbing grades easier?
@Val, didn't know that. Perhaps I should consider my long-overdue climbing trip to Europe (or anywhere else, really). Are these "modern" gyms different at all? Or have they just attracted more clients?

Nice answer. My take on gyms is that they're especially useful to train: do repetitions and have your body learn and strengthen. They are designed for that.

comment How to safely mark a rope
Is the glue on electrical tape (or duct-tape) safe for the rope?

comment Do Half/Twin/Double Ropes get Middle Marked?
I had the urge to ask: how do you mark your rope? So I posted this question.

comment Dealing with large runouts during sport climbing
Top-roping should be an option; especially if you think it's a dangerous climb (and assuming you can set it up beforehand).

comment What are creative uses for retired carabiners?
You are right, of course. However, there are answers here (like the coat rack by @pheidlauf) which gives the retired carabiner a good use and is unlikely to be mistaken with a good one.

comment What to do at the top of a sport climb
Of the two answers provided so far, one involves leaving the top-rope for the next climber, while the other one explains cleaning the route (no more climbers). Which one were you asking? Maybe both?

comment Reference request: books on self-rescue while climbing
Since answers are supposed to be in English, I'll leave this as a comment. If you happen to know Spanish, I recommend this great book - ISBN: 9788487746918 (title translates to: Prevention, Security, and Self-rescue).
