>>> I also make sure when they arrive at a belay (invariably I am leading, so this is easy to do), that their primary anchor is the climbing rope (already tied to them), clove hitched to the belay/'powerpoint'/anchor.

M9- this surprised me a bit. So if you're on a multipitch affair, you will anchor yourself to the belay with a clove hitch of the climbing rope AND a daisy? Is this a safety concern (e.g., redundancy) or convenience (adjusting position relative the anchor)? Honestly I'm curious- I don't know why you would use both.

and just to troll a bit more, care to comment on one of the other "deal-breakers" from R&I?: "Has a climbing grade of any kind in their e-mail address" ... hehe
