I've got the double butterfly coil down pretty well but I've realized the benefits of having the rope single coiled so that it doesn't need to be re-flaked. Does anyone have a video to reference or photo's of how to create a (semi) comfortable single coil butterfly backpack? I met an Aussie at Devils Tower who made a perfect backpack without even thinking about it when we were rapping with another party.
As far as multi-pitch rope management, I need to get better at controlling my loop sizes when in a hanging belay. When swinging leads I can usually make progressively shorter loops over my tether or feet, but I have to start out with friggin 20 foot loops! When leading in blocks and using the "flip" technique to my partners tether, I more often than not end up with a tangle. It's to the point where I'll usually reflake the rope over their tether instead of flipping.
I shared a couple belays with a guy on Snake Dike that was leading the entire route who had this dialed. Any advice out there on getting better at choosing the size of my loops? I know nothing is a substitute for experience, but maybe there's an easy technique that I'm overlooking
