comment What can I do to help relieve joint pain in fingers after climbing?
They're both the same family of drug, and taking full doses of both at the same time can lead to liver damage.

comment How do I inspect a climbing rope?
Good question - I don't have a definitive answer, though. I'd ask it again as a new question if I were you

comment How can I locate lanes where I can legally drive a 4x4 in the UK?
@Greg.Ley - this is more of an access issue - green-laning is fairly popular outdoor activity in the UK, but there are restrictions on where you can legally partake in the activity.

comment What essential items should go in a small first aid kit?
@Roddy this isn't "current" and it isn't UK-only - and it makes sense - see adverse reactions/complications. Also, "suggesting" to your casualty (or leaving a couple of painkillers on a table for them) is even worse, because when the professionals turn up, you can't tell them categorically what medication they have had. OTOH, a person who is susceptible to a condition (like anaphylaxis, heart problems, asthma, etc) should already have the necessary remedy, and alert other party members to their need and the location of said remedy.

comment Cooking by pouring hot water into plastic bags?
This isn't really any different to how army rations and MRE (meals ready to eat) are packaged and eaten from - if you can find out what material they use, then I'd suggest sourcing bags made from the same stuff.

comment Does any tent manufacturer promise to have replacement parts?
The kind of damage that is being described probably wouldn't be covered by most guarantees - and a guarantee will likely mean the manufacturer replaces your damaged tent rather than particular parts.
