    Not only does the Petzl Reverso 4 Belay and Rappel Device give you serious stopping power when you're holding massive whippers, but it also functions as an auto-locking device when you're belaying the following climber directly off the anchor. This allows you to re-rack, tie your shoes, sip some water, and take a few photos without risking your climbing partner's life. Belaying two followers at once? No problem. Rappelling 15 pitches? The deep grooves give you plenty of control. Petzl also added a secondary clip-in point to help you release a locked rope if you need to lower a follower who has fallen.

    • Can be used to belay the leader or one or two following climbers; can be used for rappelling
    • Functions as a self-locking device when belaying off the anchor
    • Trimmed-down design shaves weight well below the previous versions
    • Deep V-notches add plenty of friction and increase control for long rappels
    • Secondary clip-in point to help in releasing a locked rope
    • Works on single ropes down to 8.9mm
    • Effective braking on half and twin ropes of 7.5mm or more
    • Item #PTZ0317

    Go-to belay device

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

    Love this for the second loop on the other end. Between this and the Grivel Master Pro I'm set. Stoked

    Great Choice for a Belay/Rappel Device

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My go to belay device when I also need to rappel. Looks great, and works even better. My main complaint is that it started to show signs of wear after about the first year of use (it still works great and I trust it with my life, but it's still worth noting).

    My first belay device

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is my first belay device and I love it. It takes a couple of climbs to break it in, but after a few climbs it belays nice and smoothly. Definitely looking forward to climbing with it some more.

    Great Belay Device

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been using the Black Diamond ATC-XP for the last couple years and it has been awesome. I decided to pick up this Petzl Reverso to start doing some multipitch routes and utilize the guide mode. I've yet to use the guide mode, but I've used this to belay and rappel and it has been extremely smooth and easy to use. I've been using this with my 10.1 mm Sterling rope and they work great together. I'll update my review once I get a chance to do some multipitch and utilize the guide mode.

    First and only device

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my all-time favorite belay device. It is light, easy to carry, easy to use and does exactly what I need it to do when I use it. It also wears well, the rope hasn't worn down the V's teeth yet and I think that is helpful when I catch my partner or rap. I would recommend this device for anyone climbing anything. Good for sport, multi, rapping and trad.

    Great ATC for Multipitch

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The reverso is simple but effective. the guide mode of the reverso works great. I have used this belay device until has no teeth and I have never seen the guide mode fail. The lower function works well but this is the hardest function to use on all of the guide mode belay devices. Still love it and use it all the time.

    Great Belay Device

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    High quality piece of gear from Petzl. Takes years of abuse and still works just fine (to be fair there is not much to it).

    Does it work well with one mammut twilight 7.7 half rope in one slot? Note that I dont put 2 ropes in two slots in the classic double setup.

    Best Answer

    Ming,



    On double ropes this belay device can take ropes as small as 7.5mm in diameter.
