belaying seconds on a multipitch 11-Apr-2016 At 11:00:02 AM peteclimbs
It's the sort of question that can (and probably will) lead to pages of discussion as there are plenty of opinions out there.

To answer the OPs question though, I'd be so bold as to suggest that the modern day consensus is: Direct off the anchor using an autoblock belay device such at ATC Guide/Reverso or a gri gri - so the top left pic in Mikl's first post.

This is what I do and it works well for most situations and with a bit of practice it's quick to set up and much more relaxing to use that going direct off your harness, particularly if you're second weights the rope at any stage.
