belaying seconds on a multipitch 19-Apr-2016 At 7:03:15 AM Zarb
On the topic of anchors for belaying up a second, thought I would ask this here rather than on a new thread.

When pieces are close together and I want to tie in with the rope, I use that self equalising bunny ears trick with an overhhand on the bight next to the knot (underneath) to attach the plate in guide mode.

However when pieces are far apart I've started to use the method of tying in with the rope where you clip each piece as you would as if on the climb, then run the rope back to the harness with clove hitches on the belay loop (I assume this is the regular method of tying in with the rope?).
Is there a way to use guide mode on this second method of tying in? Or will it always be off the hip and through a redirect?
