"The block of the ATC is made of steel" .... erm, some kind of aluminium alloy. Your general point is right though, failure of the body of the ATC is simply not a concern.

comment What type of knife should I carry while rock climbing?
The only common scenario is when you are setting up your own rappel anchors. Generally a team on a long route will carry a few metres of 6 or 7mm cord for this, and you don't want to use all of it at once.

comment Is it generally allowed to walk in German forests in the night?
I don't know about general regulations, but in the climbing guidebooks it's mentioned that one should not climb at some crags after 6 in the evening.
