The Petzl Reverso Belay Device uses a unique design to attach directly to an anchor's power point to provide a self-locking catch when you belay one or two climbers from above. When used in this mode, the Reverso Belay Device allows you to eat, drink, tie your shoes, and take some pictures while providing your second with a completely safe catch. Of course, this Petzl belay device works for belaying the leader as well, whether the climbing takes place on twin 8mm ropes or a single 11mm rope. The Reverso's incredible versatility makes it a great choice for multi-pitch climbs and a top pick of guides everywhere.

Nice for rappelling

I like this belay device, it works smoothly and efficiently. The only thing I can really say against it is that it seems as though it needs a bigger rope to make the catch and subsequent hold a bit easier on the hands- my 10.2 doesn't lock-off in this device the way it does with other devices. It may be that the biner isn't able to get up inside the device, maybe not; either way, I just feel like this device doesn't lock as well as others. It is great for feeding rope, and for rappelling though.

Hauled one from Canada to Patagonia

The ability to do everything the Kong Gi-Gi can do, plus belay a leader was a brilliant move by Petzl. I'm very thankful that they created this device as it has made other companies step up innovation and create better gear. I don't feel that anyone has come up with a better answer though. The only reason you don't find one on my harness full time is the additional friction needed to pull a rope through the device. The metal frame that keeps the carabiner from twisting is a great feature. The frame also allows relatively easy flip- ability of this device so that you can release it, which is great if your friends or client run outa gas half way up the climbing route you are on. The only other downer about this great Petzl tool is that it does become grooved out and sharp, such that its life isn't as long as it should be.

Quickly became my favorite!

I bought the Reverso several years ago to use while leading multi-pitch routes. It was so easy to use as an auto-block that I started bringing it with me all the time. The reverso is great for all types of belaying. It feeds very quickly when sport climbing and still provides a super secure catch.
