comment How to prepare for a long rocky alpine route, which is unusual for me?
What's the typical ratio between climbing and scrambling in the routes you have in mind? Is it basically climbing with some easier sections every now and then or is it scrambling, that has some occasional climbing sections?

comment How to belay on top of a pitch
It's only available in German (I know that you understand it) and I don't have time to write a full-blown answer, but the bergundsteigen journal has an article about the pro's of belaying from your harness instead of from the anchor: bergundsteigen.at/file.php/archiv/2012/3/… Hope it helps somehow.

comment Ration or consume water?
This answer would need some more information to be useful. Things that spring to my mind are "How much water did he have?", "Where did that happen?", "How was the climate when this incident happened?". Even then the answer's endangered to be only anecdotal and possibly cannot be generalized to other people and situations.
