And just to be clear, you are posting this in a thread started by someone who is so new to climbing that he (?) does not know the difference between flash and redpoint. He really needs to rope solo while redpointing his route, right?

This was actually one of the reasons I suggested top rope soloing. I don't think the OP is going to project some 5.13 overhanging stuff (where your bolt-to-bolt tactic works much better), but rather vertical routes where the main problem is not having the technique or endurance to climb it without resting. Also, new climbers often have very few climbing partners, so doing some TR soloing on those days none of your friends can make it is much better than trashing your fingers on the fingerboard at home.

But sure, I agree that TR soloing is not always the best way to project, but it definitely can be something worth considering.
