comment How to reduce the annoying sound of falling raindrops on a tent?
Even better if you tie off another tarp or fly sheet above your main tent, and layer or tie some branches/foliage to that top layer.

comment Chalk: pure, plus drying agent, liquid?
Would you want sticky fingers while tying off, belaying, or sport/lead climbing? I prefer plain chalk because it won't coat the rope or other gear with adhesives or chemicals.

comment What are the key differences between Mountaineering and Rock Climbing?
I wouldn't refer to a climb of El Cap as a case of mountaineering. It's a specific, technical, and specific-scope activity. Mountaineering is wider in scope, range, skillset and focus. From another side, all mountaineers will have climbing experience, but the same can't be said in reverse. Especially where indoor climbing has increased in popularity. Even climbing breaks into trad, sport/lead and indoor, whereas mountaineering incorporates climbing, hiking, outdoor skills, greater emphasis on survival skills, weather, navigation, etc.
