Great Belay Device

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you are looking for a good belay device that has the ability to belay and set up a rappel, but has a little more friction than your normal ATC then the Black Diamond ATC-XP Belay Device is for you. The friction enhancing teeth are awesome for lowering or rappelling, they make things real easy and are definitely worth the extra couple bucks.
