I tried several designs inspired by youtube videos but I don't know their names. For sure non of them looked like the one you suggested, which looks interesting, thanks. I was also wondering about this, where the jets are actually blowing inwards :youtube.com/watch?v=wTp5zTOYPHQ

I am actually quite happy with the efficiency of my current esbit solution, but this one looks indeed more efficient, assuming that the esbit would be ventilated enough to burn at full heat. Maybe I'll give it a try, the point is, I avoid esbit overal because of the soot and smell. I use it for alpine overnighters though.

The problem is, Ailefroide itself is granite. I was asking for limestone, which I indeed found. Time to give a self-answer to this. Thanks for reminding me :)

comment Dealing With Wind Direction Changes When Sleeping In A Tarp
Here's a fully enclosed tarp setup.youtu.be/uYO0JKPfAIo I guess it can be pitched pretty tight, especially if you wrap more than one cord around the pole. It would also work above the tree line. I never tried it personally though.

You could try this setup. youtube.com/watch?v=t_TTAAzvybA I never tried it myself yet. It looks like it might work OK for the setting you describe - moderate wind coming - potentially - from any side. There is going to be quite some condensation, though.

comment Insoles rolling in when shoes are wet
I never experienced this, but I also was about to suggest to glue them. There IS a glue for everything.

comment Finding a suitable slope to practice self arrest?
Totally? I'd say that it depends on the slope, sir.

comment Is it realistic to teach yourself rock climbing?
You can. I am self-teaching my own old self for what matters aid climb and soloing, because I have no teachers here. But as Andy Kirkpatrick said, "one day of good instruction is worth one year of getting it wrong"

Trips around the Morteratsch glacier. That's where I learnt.
