Discussion of how to use twin ropes is far more common than twin ropes. They're only (maybe) used by the hypoxic crowd for trudging up glorified ski slopes. Never seen them at an Australian crag.

What would be the training benefit of that though?

What now? Apparently you've never seen Wendy use double ropes to clip 30 bits of gear on a 12m pitch.

Given that plenty of modern 9mm ropes are rated for all methods of clipping, I tend not to worry about using doubles as twins on straight pitches.
It's good to practice if you can. I never understood how a sewing machine works till I started fuching up with double ropes.
