As Black Diamond's most versatile belay/rappel device, the ATC-Guide is now 10% lighter and features improved handling in guide mode. With an oval-ized anchor hole, the device now feeds rope and allows you to pull rope more easily. Multiple friction modes provide the optimal amount of stopping power when you lower or rappel, and guide mode lets you belay one or two seconding climbers off an anchor.
