The Black Diamond ATC Guide is a full function belay device with dual frictions belay and rappel modes and a Guide Mode for belaying one or two seconding climbers. In Guide Mode it locks if someone falls, plus you can lower a climber regardless of weight difference between climber and belayer, because of a unique release point built in to the unit.

Go To Device

By Zachary

from Duluth, MN, USA

Comments about Black Diamond ATC Guide:

It's my favorite. I have used a few others (ATC, ATC-XP, GriGri, other tube style) but the guide is my favorite and allows me to give smooth lead belays, auto-block mode for belaying from the top and easy 3-1 raise setup (short hauls of course), raps quick if you want, remember to back it up kids! I currently have two, one for normal use (even in the gym since it's smoother giving slack than the ATC-XP) and one on my dedicated chairlift self/evac harness that lives in my patrol pack since it is so versatile.

Used this for years and have always loved it. The autolock is great. Haven't found anything better.

My go-to device that brings me and my partner closer! ;)

By Shawnee

from Mount Hood, OR 97041, USA

Comments about Black Diamond ATC Guide:

I have used the ATC Guide for several seasons. It is super easy to use, and works great. Lowering a second can be tricky, but with practice you can manage. I think I will get another soon, as my first one is starting to wear (which is a good thing)! Great product!

Simple and Solid

By FourteenFour

from Pacific Northwest & SLC

Comments about Black Diamond ATC Guide:

Does it get any more reliable than this? I don't think so. Simple and solid. That's what I look for in most of my purchases and the BD ATC-guide definitely qualifies. My go-to for trad climbing, ice climbing, and glacier rescue scenarios. Best value on the market IMO.

My belay device

By Alexandre

from Gaspé, QC, Canada

Comments about Black Diamond ATC Guide:

This is the belay device I use for any climbing I do. It is great for multi-pitch climbing. The auto-block hole use to be too small, but now they seem to have ajust this issue.

Must have.

By Levi

from Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Village, CA 95389, USA

Comments about Black Diamond ATC Guide:

I recently started climbing and looking around at other peoples gear and starting to build up a rack... this was the only thing I saw out there. After climbing for a few months and using this to rappel and belay, I can say that its definitely worth its weight in gold. Haven't had any trouble braking or using it to belay on my first couple of leads! Overall great product and a must have for any climber.

Great device with several must have features, great for belaying second from top of pitch and awesome as an auto lock device for crevasse rescue.

Excellent device for mulit-pitch

By andrew

from Oregon, USA

Comments about Black Diamond ATC Guide:

This is a great device to belay a second. I've had the pleasure of using it to do everything from hauling, rappelling, lowering, in plaquette mode, and atc mode. It is very versatile. I would highly recommend this to any climber wanting to move from top roping to lead climbing and cleaning routes. 5-star
