comment Advantages of types of sleeping bags over another
@AM_Hawk I'm not a native English speaker and every dictionary entry I found concerning the term "yolk(s)" was totally unrelated to sleeping bags. Could you explain what it means in this context?

comment Color vision deficiency a dead end for mountaineering career, as an athlete?
Obviously (see the answers given so far) it does not get quite clear what you mean with "career" in this context. Do you think about getting a mountaineering professional in terms of a sponsored athlete or a mountain guide or do you just want to attend commercially guided mountaineering tours? Also the type of color vision deficiency is of interest as it makes a huge difference. Could you please clarify?

comment What to do at the top of a sport climb
Step 4 should never ever be omitted as it is an important safety check! In reality we surely will omit it in lots of situations, but explicitly advising to do so is no good idea!

Welcome to the great outdoors. Currently your answer is quite short, which often frowned upon. Please have a look at our Guided Tour to familiarize yourself with out Q&A format and how good answers should look like.

comment Pros and cons of Tent vs bivvy bag
As you seem to closely relate hammocks and bivvy sacks and talk a lot about finding spots to hang things, could it be that you confuse bivouac sack ("bivvy") with a portaledge?
