Black Diamond ATC Guide Reviews

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.

Product Reviews

A great general multi pitch belay device. Also can use for ascending a rope if done properly. The orientation of the guide loop (loop on top of belay device) is side to side to it is oriented nicely when attached to your harness with a carabiner.

My go to.

About $23.00
Weight: 64 g (2.3 oz)
accepts ropes from 7.7 to 11 mm

I greatly appreciate the deep ribbing on the inside of the device. It provide a great amount of friction without the wear and tear on the rope.
The Black Diamond XP ATC. Paired with my 9.8 rope feels percent for top rope or leading.
I also appreciate that I can confidently use my ATC with diffrent sized ropes without feeling that its too tight or loose.

Theres not one thing I dislike about this ATC.

My experiance:
I picked this bad boy up at my local REI as a beginner. I will always choose this one over any other belay/reppelle device. The simplicity of the device made it very easy to learn
