comment Rappelling from tree
Sorry, but rappelling directly off a bolt is not the accepted practice. Always leave a carabiner: they're called "leaver" biners for a good reason. Threading the rope directly through the hanger can damage the rope and the hanger.

Good point @MichaelKjörling. I am in Switzerland, but my hope is this question (and hopefully its answer) would be useful to all Europeans.

comment Belaying two seconds?
Have a great time and be safe! The other techniques are worth experimenting with on the ground (or a staircase) a few times once you feel comfortable with managing two ropes.

comment Belaying two seconds?
When starting out, it's much easier to belay one climber at a time and wait for them to reach the belay before belaying the last climber.

+1 for don't drop the baby twice :). Practice close to the ground (even a moderately steep hill will do) the first time.

+1. Dry socks and a big meal are the best things you can do to keep your feet warm all night long.
