Brian F.wrote a review of Black Diamond ATC-Pilot Belay Device on December 21, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love this ATC Pilot. It is very lite, easy to use and you feel like your combining an ATC with a grigi but without the weight and much more ease of use than the grigiri alone. It is very easy to get rope out to a lead climber and belaying someone down is its real selling point. I showed the Pilot to my friends at my indoor climbing gym and the next day the local REI sold out! I have used the Pilot outside twice since getting it a few weeks ago and it's perfect for working projects and simply climbing any type of single pitch route.
