Do you mind if I edit your post a bit and put some headings in-between of paragraphs?

comment Selecting a hammer drill for bolting climbs
This answer doesn't address the questions asked. It helps, perhaps, in improving the question. Asked are, as precise as possible, scientifically accurate explanations, for (the most) important technical characteristics of a hammer drill. E.g. why RPM should range between 0 and X and why it should not be above Y, or similar. For sure, depending on the type of the rock, the answers will differ accordingly. Thank you, however, for your time and sharing your experience.

@amphibient Thanks for the comment. I think such a question (still) belongs here, among other climbing related questions. Follow-ups, could be on bolts, on how to bolt, what to take care and much more.

comment Avoiding tangles when leading on double ropes
Note, avoid using ropes of unequal length. If it happens, for whatsoever might the reason be, it's going to be really messy... !

comment Which knot for climbing: figure eight, yosemite bowline, bowline on a bight?
The reason I switched to the (Yosemite) Bowline, years ago, was the figure eight's "untieability" after falls. It's easy to tie and to check as well.

comment What equipment do I need as a beginner outdoor rock climber?
I don't think that chalk gives a nice extra grip. It's useful to absorb fingertip(s)-sweat. That's all! Too much chalk on a grip (can make it a muddy grip!) or on fingers will decrease the actual friction. I would rephrase the respective sentence to be accurate in what and how the use of chalk does whatever it does.

comment What everyday tasks can be adapted in a way that helps build muscles and technique for bouldering?
I (too) actively use less fingers for carrying bags etc.
