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).

Sorry, but this is incorrect and unsafe. The double fisherman's or flat overhand are much better knots that do not have ropes rubbing on each other.
