Another interesting article, thank you.
However the set up in "Using the rope on a big block belay at Hen Cloud, Staffordshire" doesnt look ideal. A load on the rope would likely pull the belayer off the rock leaving them hanging or cause them to swing into the wall.
That's what happened to me in Swannage. I was belaying close to the edge to encourage my second. She fell and the rope extension took me over the edge. It didn't help that I was not directly in the line of force- this should get a mention too.
Good article I thought.
