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.

Your list of unwarranted assumptions continues to grow, and you've added a false dichotomy, as well. Moreover, by recommending top-rope soloing to work a route when the climber's problem is a lack of endurance, you've just defeated your own argument.
