comment Knot to turn cord into loop (load bearing)
I'm not a big fan of that alternative name because of the connotations it brings :). Agreed, dressing it well (pulling on each pair of strands) is key.

comment Travelling and taking climbing chalk through customs
Agreed; I have flown with chalk in both carry-on and checked luggage. Don't carry on a nut tool, however!

Here are three links that recommend washing ropes in washing machines (including one from Sterling, who makes ropes): sterlingrope.com/faq rei.com/learn/expert-advice/rope-care.html ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=202

Then we shall agree to disagree. Good thing we don't store each others' ropes :)

comment How should a climbing rope be stored?
Welcome to outdoors.sx! Please clarify that you mean 50C, not 50F :). Also, I believe it is more correct to say that "the strength of frozen wet nylon is lower" than "frozen, wet nylon tends to break".

Disagree with #3; I was my rope all the time, often in the washing machine.

In most cases when sport climbing, #3 (hitting the deck) is the only thing we really care about. Many exceptions exist.
