I just started climbing this season and have been going about 2-3 times a week and have done some sight on seen leads. I am feeling confident enough to want to start multi pitch sport cimbes. Peoples choice for example is a climb I'm interested in.

I understand how to setup the ATC guide to belay from an anchor but do you clip your self with a sling or dasychain into the same top bolts that you use for your anchor for the belay device? Thanks in advance

My favorite way is to clove into the master point with the rope on multi pitch. It's adjustable, fast, dynamic and works well for one person leading all pitches or swinging. As for belaying off the anchor vs the harness, it just depends on the situation. Knowing how to do both with or without a redirect is important. Best to have someone show you though I'm sure you can find a book or web picture that demonstrates it too. Do you know how to setup the anchor itself with a sliding/magic X or a cordalette? You should have bolted sport anchors but you still have to attach to them. Chris Plesko

Peoples choice is a great climb, you can take the 5.8 first pitch to keep it mellow. Now as for the belay I prefer to equalize the two bolts and anchor into them with the rope via clove hitch. The belay device I clip into one of the bolts, or the top shelf and belay from there. If you like that climb you might want to check out the first three pitch's of solid gold on the Creek Side crag.

Yeah, I know how to setup the top rope anchor using a cordelett. I think I should just talk to someone on the rock to walk me through it before hand to make sure got the right setup. Thanks for all your help. I have done the first pitch of peoples choice and its pretty fun. Jonathan Reeves

That's probably the easiest the first time. If you already know how to do most of the parts it will be simple. I'd be happy to show you sometime after work.
