Topic - where should a second tie into your belay when swinging leads?

wjcdean - on 28 Dec 2012
morning all,
im relatively new to trad climbing and was wondering what your advice would be for securing a second once they reach the belay station? So far ive only done easy climbs that have lovely big ledges to belay from so i usually just tie them off as we exchange gear. obviously this is no good for harder routes where you might have a hanging belay, so what do you do in this situation?

i get that if you've used a cordalette they can just pop a crab through the mainpoint and clove hitch on, but this isnt possible if you've tied in with the rope.

any advice would be appreciated, thanks :)
Will
