In a general on a sling. Means that the gear is rarely pinned between the wall and me when I need it, because I've looked at the route ahead of time and determined which shoulder would be against the rock most. However, if its a straight in crack, or the rack is really light, I'll rack on my harness just so there's less on my person.
I really hate getting skull-tapped by the #5 camalot, so its nice to hang it out of the way. Also, when things are steep, the gear sling tends to hang out of the way anyway.
Its only on slabby terrain that it can be a problem.
