great package for versatile climbing

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

bought this as a gift for a friend who has finally graduated from top roping at the gym and is getting out side. I have pretty much used BD ATC's and carabiners for all of my belaying needs in my climbing career. More importantly I trust all of my partners to use them as well. The teeth on the XP are really nice if your partner is bigger than you and you need a little more control on the lowering, or if you are using some smaller diameter ropes on alpine or ice objectives. Always reassuring to slap the ropes in high friction mode to abseil with gloves on after a long cold day on an alpine route.

Gets the job done

I bought this package because I liked the price and its exactly what I expected. I like the carabiner and the ATC both. The ATC has a friction side which is why I like it.

Great for lead belay

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I absolutely love climbing and belaying with the atc-xp. The friction channels handle great and would trust most people to belay for me

Great for lead belay

The Black Diamond Big Air XP belay is a great addition to any climbers plethora of gear. It can be used for any type of climbing. It is super light and very durable. The screwgate is a huge plus with the keylock nose to get rid of any snags. I would recommend this to any climber looking for a new ATC!

Fits my rope perfectly

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This ATC-XP is great! I love that it came in a package with a carabiner. I always keep this combination together because the carabiner is a little smaller than I prefer for things like top-rope anchors. This is definitely a great deal.
The rope I use is perfect for this XP-- 9.8 mm thickness. I've never experienced any stick with my rope in the system. Combo is super lightweight and simple. I'm really glad I bought this package!

Best Brakes

One of the most versatile, super bomber, and idiot proof belay devices. I love how it handles my skinny 8mm rope for canyoneering all the way to my fat 10.5mm for sport climbing. Its light enough I don't really notice it on my harness. I've had both the older style and the newer style and can say that the weight difference is noticeable. If you have an old ATC and are thinking about upgrading DO IT! You won't regret it. The mini Pearabiner is solid and a great locker but a little smaller than I prefer for a belay biner. This package is a great deal with the best ATC around.

Yes!

Solid biner and ATC device. Bites the rope well, and is lightweight. Just like Rory below, the ATC device that came with my purchase is orange. No complaints, though, love it!

Solid

This little guy is really solid - use it for indoor climbing all the time. Love the high friction mode.

Solid Purchase

The newer ATC-XP with holes in the walls that comes with this is amazing. It's noticeably lighter and it seems to bite on the rope a lot better than my older ATC-XP. As an FYI, the belay device I got with this package was bright orange. This is a great package buy and I have zero complaints.

Responded on

can you put two ropes in it, or is it a single rope?

Responded on

you can put two ropes in it but it is a little hard because the holes in the belay device are really small...

Responded on

I've done several two rope rappels with this setup and never had a problem.
