Nice work, guys.

One criticism: The link to the Gripped article under the topic "How do I get my draws back after a sport climb?" discusses a single method of threading sport anchors, which will work on only a minority of beginner sport climbs; namely, those with rings large enough to accommodate a bight of rope. Furthermore, although the article disclaims it in a caption set in microtype, the photograph shows the climber clipped to the anchor with only a single draw. Since experience on this website suggests that the typical beginning climber can neither read nor write, a beginner relying on this article is likely to mimic the setup in the picture, if he's lucky enough to have ascended to anchors with sufficiently large rings. If he's unlucky enough to find himself facing, say, chain anchors, he may have no idea what to do. Either way, this article was a poor choice to link to.

I debated putting a link to anything in there. I'll look around for something better, or remove it entirely, if I can't find anything. (If you know of anything off hand, point it out to me.)

I don't know of a link. Maybe the thing to do is to write an article from scratch, and link to that.

Nope. Not basic enough.
