ATC Guide

The ATC Guide Belay Device is already worthy of any climber's arsenal, but Black Diamond made it even better for alpinists and crag-stars alike. It still transcends the tube/auto-blocking category, allowing for a standard belay as well as belaying one or two climbers off anchors. Black Diamond upgraded it with machined windows for a lighter weight, and the larger auto-block release accepts smaller carabiners for a smoother and more dependable operation.

  • Black Diamond's best-selling belay device built 10% lighter
  • Multiple friction modes designed for both belay and rappel
  • Guide mode allows auto-block top rope belays at anchors
  • Auto-block release hole accepts small carabiners
  • Item #BLD00ZA

Multi Tool

I've put it through the wringer

I agree with everything Tim C. said about the black diamond atc guide. It you are looking to progress your climbing later I would recommend this ATC. It is great for belaying for top rope, lead climbing, repelling, and multi pitch. When you use this on a multi pitch it make belaying your buddy up to you easy. The auto blocking that it has adds comfort in case you slip it holds the climber on the wall still (though never let go)
