    Real Nice

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Trusty and easy to use. Great for beginners and canyoneering, it's the only thing I like to use for rappels.

    Simple and nice

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I just started climbing and wasn't really sure between all the different kind of varieties I should pick for ATCs. I really like this one, since I learned on something similar to this one. I really like the color and how simple it is. Great for beginners!

    Perfect belay device for a beginner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Black Diamond ATC-XP is a great tube style device to learn to belay with. I believe it's important to learn good technique before moving onto some of the other belay devices available. It's very simple tp use and with no moving parts should last a long time. The extra grooves really help to hold the rope while your climbing partner is taking a brake and lowering someone is very easy.

    ATC-XP Belay Device is tried and true

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the only Belay Device that I've used and when I needed I new one, I went with what I know works and will hold up.

    Ol' Reliable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This belay/rappel device is a classic for a reason. It's simple, it works, and you really don't need anything else. It's tried and true and enables you to belay and rappel with confidence. From climbing to canyoneering, this deserves a place on your harness.

    my go to since climbing birth

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    this thing has been with me since I started climbing and is all time. belays well, rapps well. I always recommend BD products, and this one is one of the greatest and most durable.

    Good belay device

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Use this belay device quite frequently. I have nothing to compare it to as I have not used any other device. Seems to be of good quality and does the job great. Definitely would recommend.

    Great ATC tool / Consider getting Guide

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Been doing roped climbing for about two years and only got into multi-pitch a month ago. If you foresee yourself getting into multipitch consider investing in the ATC Guide. All around great product that wont fail you.

    Great Beginning Belay!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Once you learn the ATC belay you can pretty much get the hang of any belay system. This is an awesome starting belay - super smooth feed with efficient braking ridges. It's my go-to in the climbing gym!

    Zipping and Whipping

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Used on many canyoneering descents and to keep the husband ground fall free. The teeth are nice when you've got rappelling obstacles to deal with. Burly and easy to use.

    Great piece

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    love this belay device! It's got nice grip when you need it, and, if you want less grip (say, for rappelling) then just thread the rope the opposite way.
