Hey guys, I was wondering if I need to get proper instruction on how to multi-pitch climb. I'm already pretty good at lead climbing and have looked at a few books and websites on how to multi-pitch climb and how to build anchors. Thanks for any replies!

Ummmmm, you kinda don't want to Fuck this one up.

Seek a more experienced partner who can teach you the basics. Building anchors is not something that should be learned from books.

Depending on your area, it is no different than single pitch climbing, or it could be horrific experiences requiring routefinding, hanging belays and involved descents.

Start small, and be cautious. If you can't find anyone more experienced to take you, climb popular routes, so others can advise you on the way.

EDIT:
From other posts I see you are in Oregon.
Smith Rock - Cinnamon Slab and all the routes to the right of it would be an excellent introduction to Multi pitch.
