nah i think its heaps better only having one rope to deal with! for link-ups and speed stuff i've done, the value of only having one rope to deal with is heaps more. Less rope weight/drag, easy to tag up extra gear/drill/haul line. short-fixing, belay management is all easier! I guess if it will be beneficial to you, you will understand whats required however!

As for sharp edges, when ropes slice on an ironstone edge, i find it very hard to believe that two very skinny rope have any greater chance. I've had ropes coreshot from falling rocks, and think running twins would be good against that. Sharp edges should just be avoided at all costs. I guess I think a lot of people need more practice in using slings etc to run ropes away from sharp edges.
