The Black Diamond ATC Guide is a lightweight belay device that offers guide mode belaying options and multiple friction modes for optimal stopping power.
Already a massively versatile belay and abseil device, the Black Diamond ATC Guide has again improved. Now 10% lighter thanks to machined windows in the body of the device, there are also improved handling features when belaying in guide mode. The auto-block release hole has been enlarged to accept a small carabiner and the oval-sized anchor-hole now allows you to feed rope and pull rope more easily. Multiple friction modes provide the optimal amount of stopping power when lowering or abseiling, and the guide mode allows you to belay either one or two seconding climbers off an anchor.
