comment Is caffeine helpful or hurtful when backpacking?
Nice! Do you have a reference for your statement "the time it takes to lose the addiction is typically very short, typically just a few days"?

comment Avoiding tangles when leading on double ropes
Hey, I was going to page you :) Personally, I tend to find a mess when the second arrives at my belay (I do most of the leading). However, I think it would also be helpful to have general strategies for all to use.

comment Anchor without cordelette?
Great answer! To add a tiny bit: in any self-rescue situation, using the rope for an anchor adds a lot of steps to the rescue (I think you hinted at this).

comment When climbing should a carabiner ever be clipped to the tie-in loops, and should anything other than a carabiner ever attach to the belay loop?
I agree; Girth hitching the belay loop is fine (they are plenty strong and way over-engineered).
