Given the example pic you posted the answer is obvious.
Those who donít use double ropes (at least to abseil on if intending to climb out), donít go there.

A committing place like there, or Point Perp prolly has peeps temporarily leaving abseil rope/s in place as backup in case of needing to jug out.

Even absquealers with specialy long ropes might like another rope for a belay?
