    How to make the best ATC better.

    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.

    Must have for your belaytionship

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Black Diamond Guide ATC is a must have. Not only are you getting an amazing ATC that's both sturdy and convenient, but you don't need to worry about switching out devices for your multi pitch and single pitch routes. It's my favorite for multi-pitch climbing.When set up properly, the guide ATC will be great for catching lead falls from above, as it essentially works as an auto-locking belay device when set up properly. It also feeds rope very well. It is great for both belaying and rappelling. The reverso is lighter however, so if you're looking to cut down on weight, that one may the the way to go.

    Super Belay

      Convenient, reliable, very functional thing. Very happy with the purchase. I recommend.

      Mutli-pitch necessity

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This device is pretty standard when it comes to climbing with one feature that sets it apart from an ATC. The guide function allows for a smoother belay when tackling multi-pitch walls. The weight compared to a regular ATC is pretty much the same but having this added feature is what makes this device so versatile, from belaying single pitch, multi-pitch to hefty rappels this bad boy can handle it all.

      does the job

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Function, form, price--it delivers. I'm a newbie climber taking suggestions from buddies. Almost all have this in their gear bag and I can see why. Just works.

      Classic Device

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Dropped my previous belay device off a rockface. My previous device survived, but as a matter of safety I decided to pick a new one up. I'm happy with it. Does what it needs to do!

      its THE belay device

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The OG, the Original, the ONE. If there is a single belay device to have, this is the ones you want. Belay from above, below, rappel, everything. High quality piece of gear that you should have for every climbing adventure

      You don't own one?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Essential piece of gear on the rack. Gri's are great, but for $20 there is no reason not to own one of these!

      Super ATC

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Nice quality and sturdy ATC, does the job.

      works great

        Great quality ATC. Looks really neat with the matte black paint, though I do wonder how long that will last.

        A classic for a reason

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        There’s nothing wrong with keeping things simple. I have a lot of trust in this ATC because it doesn’t have any moving parts. This is basically the classic ATC with some nice upgrades. The teeth add enough tension to the rope to give you control without exerting yourself.

        You wont need another atc!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Super solid and versatile. Might be the last ATC you ever buy!

        Personal Favorite

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I think every climber should own one of these. they are the perfect tool for so many situations.

        Works great

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        If you plan on doing multipitch climbing, opt for this one it makes bringing up a second climber, or two a breeze.


          Dropped my previous guide ATC last week, no reason to replace it with anything else! Great for a day at the crag or seven pitches up a tower. Just works really well.

          Works Great

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Using this at the gym for the moment - works great. Love BD!

          Worked Great

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          I got this for canyoneering, and was very pleased with it. It works great for several situations where you need more or less resistance. It doesn't have the smoothest descent when you have a thick heave rope pulling from below, but I got used to it. Also seems like it will hold up well.

          Buy this over the XP

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          If you think you might ever get into multi-pitch or have friends that even think they might. Get the Guide instead of the XP so you won't have to buy two devices.

          Great but....

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Awesome ATC, I still prefer Black diamond out of blind brand loyalty but after heavy use in the last 3 weeks it has worn a lot where the teeth are basically gone. Great for repelling, multi pitch trad, definitely great for a lot of technical climbs, but would not trust in 4-6 months. Also its super light at 88 grams which makes it so ideal.

          Absolute Classic

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Best belay I've used, hands down. Weighs a bit more than the competition, but the quality and durability on this thing is unmatchable right now, especially when you take the price into consideration. Go with this, you won't go back.

          A Black Diamond Classic

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Super solid climbing essential that has so many uses. Black Diamond manufactures these things to seriously last, just like any of their products.
