ATC Guide Belay Rappel Device
|Black Diamond ATC-Guide Belay Rappel Device - The ATC-Guide Belay Rappel Device by Black Diamond is lightweight and easy to use offering smooth handling when you are climbing to your greatest heights. The most versatile belay/rappel device, the ATC-Guide is now even lighter thanks to windows machined through the body. The auto-block release hole has been enlarged to accept a small carabiner. Multiple friction modes provide the optimal amount of stopping power when lowering or rappelling, and the device's guide mode lets you belay one or two seconding climbers off an anchor. Made with hot-forged construction, the durable cable holds its shape and resists getting caught between ropes. If you are looking for the most durable auto-blocking device around, look no further than the Black Diamond ATC-Guide Belay Rappel Device.

I use the ATC-Guide in trad rock climbing for belaying a second from the top, or for belaying from the bottom. I have a regular ATC but once I started belaying seconds I needed an ATC that would allow doing it. I am very satisfied with the ATC-guide. Only the Petzl Reverso compares to this one, but I like Black Diamond way more.
Works as it is supposed to. Got into sport climbing and wanted something that was easy to use to belay someone up to me. Haven't had any problem as far as durability, or the sharp edges others seem to experience. I have not used it a ton, but enough to feel comfortable using it.
The outdoor enthusiast
I climb on average 3 times a week both indoor and outdoor. This is my favorite Belaying/ Rappelling Device. I have this for some time and it has great braking power. This is great and a must for multi-pitch routes allowing you to do double rope rappel. There are similar devices a little lighter by a few grams however they are a little more expensive. At the time I purchased this it was the best and lightest device with as much utilities. This device is great for belaying lead climber when you must give rope very quickly. The only Con is that on project routes or belaying new climbers is that you must hold the hanging rope the entire time for climbs like that I prefer the Petzl Grigri however it is a lot more expensive
