The bomber ATC guide for skinny ropes
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The ATC guide is a solid device. Easy to use at the gym or crag. It's also the ATC device I've seen most when looking at intermediate to advanced climbers gear. This is the version for skinny ropes.
It has really good friction when belaying or rappelling and is bomber for multi pitch. In guide mode ( multi pitch) it has an autoblock feature for belaying / lowering that gives an additional peace of mind.
Exchanged for the normal guide because I generally use bigger ropes, but debating purchasing again for more confidence when using skinny twin ropes.
