Topic - Choices at the multi-pitch sport belay

russtyg - on 29 Nov 2012
Hi there,

I'm interested in hearing people's opinions and preferences with regards to conduct at a multi-pitch sport belay (say in this example, two staple bolts linked by a chain).

Forgive my lack of knowledge as I'm relatively new to this.

So, upon arrival at a bolted belay and after clipping the rope with a quickdraw to one of the bolts, should the leader then:

a) secure themselves further using the rope tied into the harness and a clove hitched HMS to the other bolt/chain
or
b) secure themselves further using a sling larks footed to their harness using a HMS to the other bolt/chain
or
c) another method
or
d) either, depends which is easier to reach etc

Thanks!

Russty
