Yeh more than one death has resulted from not tying an alpine butterfly! two ropes can often offer more protection, dont think twins would have saved nik, and two 11mm ropes didnt help the IRATA technician that died last year. I think, based on real world incidents that two ropes running together will most likely suffer similar fates from an catastrophic failure. Please don't put any faith into an equation when making a real life decision out climbing, I know im incapable of that mental arithmetic even if i wanted to! ;)

regarding EDK, i can't for the life of me work out why people dont just put another overhand in and cinch it up against the first to stop it rolling! works well with two different diameters(6 with 9.4 is what i've used most)

If you want to use doubles that's cool!! :)
