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.
