    Classic Belay Device

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I learned how to belay on this and have been using it every since. Although I have a couple gri gris I still always prefer my trusty ATC. It's easy and straightforward to use and I feel more in control when giving slack.

    Great and Classic

    Theres a reason they're the classics

    I feel like I'm parroting an earlier reviewer, but its true; there is a reason this piece is class. Its super handy, lightweight, well designed, and versatile. What's not to love? Nothing!

    Classic. For a reason.

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This device is so light, but so durable. I love using this ATC to belay. It's simple, straight forward, but still keeps you on your toes. When you're belaying someone, it's easy to get relaxed and casual with it. I really only trust my climbing partners that I know have been climbing and belaying for a while with it, otherwise I'll put a grigri in the belayers hands.

    Can Never Own Too Many

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

    Best gift--you can never have too many ATCs. The teeth on this guy adds friction when using narrower diameter ropes, which makes holding tension and giving catches easier on the belayer.

    Great Device - Easy to Use

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I learned using this same one and was excited to finally get my own. As a beginner climber I really like how this belay device handles. I currently have only climbed in the gym, so that is where this gets is primary use right now. The design is simple and very easy to use.

    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.

    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.

    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!
