    Slim down your rack without sacrificing bomber gear.

    Petzl created the Verso Belay Device for lovers of the Reverso who want to lighten their rack. Not only is the Verso 31% lighter than the Reverso, it’s more compact. Whether you’re climbing with a single, half, or twin rope, Petzl’s Adaptive Rope Control technology adapts by increasing or decreasing the braking friction to suit the diameter and conditions. When you’re climbing partner is working the crux, the Verso’s asymmetrical grooved sidewalls decrease friction for ease when taking up slack. Use this belay device with asymmetrical biners for max efficiency.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Functions perfectly and feels solid. Id consider spending the few extra bucks on a guide atc so you dont have to buy a new one when you get into multi pitch.

    Great Petzel belay device bright Blue

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    1 month out update. I bought this belay device for my 12 yr old daughter as her 1st introduction to climbing. She loves the bright shinny blue color & belays her entire family and friends with confidence and style. I highly recommend this Petzel Belay device to every climber!

    Nice Belay

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Petzl makes solid, trustworthy gear which is very important for a good belay device. It's a good price, solid, and a pretty color (I got the blue).
    Not much to report on this, other than it's a great product and you wouldn't regret purchasing it.

    Excellent belay. Great price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Works great for belay and rappel. It's worth the money to go higher with the reverso if you need that extra loop for belaying off of the anchor though.

    Great Gift for Climbers

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

    I got this as a gift for my sister and she loves it. It's a super simple, easy to use belay device. No moving parts, just simple belaying. If you're looking for a compact, light belay device, you can't go wrong with the Verso. Petzl as a whole makes bomber products. Belay on!

    Great little ATC

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Not too much to write here. This little ATC works great and is a bargain price. I like the blue color simply because it's easier to see and find amongst all my my other gear.

    Light weight as well. You almost can't feel the thing in hand.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great ATC. Easy to use and easy to find (brightly colored!). As a small gal, I don't have trouble lowering climbers heavier than me on this device. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

    Classic ATC

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have the older version of this, which used to be a red color scheme. It's a great belay device. I always recommend that people learn to use an ATC before moving on to a grigri, and this one is a classic. Never leave ground without it!

    Great Belay Device for Lighter Belayers

      I ordered the Verso to belay my 50+lbs-heavier-than-myself boyfriend, and I love it so far. The grooves give me better control and security when lowering my climber, and they help me with quicker, firmer, stronger lock-offs during falls. It's super lightweight, which I love, and the color is vibrant. The boyfriend noted, though, that belaying me with the Verso was a little more difficult than using his own standard ATC device. He stated that this was because I am much lighter, and the grooves aren't necessary for him to belay me and thus just kind of slowed him down. I would recommend it to climbers who belay heavier climbers though, I love it!
