Just in relation to the question of whether it's better to put a prusik backup above or below the belay device, I observed first hand on the weekend one of the biggest potential issues with prusik above.

We were on Watchtower Crack when a couple where rapping down from Brolga. The first climber down the rope had a prusik backup above her ATC. At some stage early in the first rap it became weighted and she was unable to free it. She had a hell of a job getting it sorted. In the end she placed a longer prusik above the jam and managed to stand up in it enough to free the problem. It all took quite a while and gave her a fair work out by the looks of things.
