Black Diamond ATC-Guide Belay Device Video

The versatile Black Diamond ATC-Guide belay device offers complete belay and rappel functions and can be used with a variety of rope sizes.


  • ATC-Guide can be set up as an auto-block device when you're belaying 1 or 2 seconding climbers
  • Auto-block release hole lets you use a carabiner or a piece of cord to release the device when loaded so you can lower a seconding climber
  • Variable friction design gives great control with many rope diameters; ATC-Guide can handle ropes sizes from 7.7 - 11mm in diameter
  • High-friction grooves provide great hold and stopping power
  • Machined windows through the device make it lighter than the original ATC-Guide belay device
  • Made from durable, hot-forged anodized 7075-T6 aluminum
  • Double-slot design allows you to feed single or double ropes smoothly without kinking the rope
