Designed for climbers who want complete belay and rappel functions in a single device, the hot-forged ATC Guide is a full-function belay device with dual-friction belay and rappel modes and an Autoblock mode for belaying one or two seconding climbers. With dual-friction modes of either high or regular friction, the ATC Guide can handle ropes from 7.7mm to 11mm in a variety of adverse situations.
In Autoblock mode with the ATC Guide you have the unique ability to lower a climber regardless of weight difference between the climber and belayer. The full-strength Autoblock anchor clip-in point is large enough to clear almost any locking carabiner sleeve, making setting up the belay much easier.
The ATC Guide is the only choice for maximum versatility in a single device. Works well with ropes from 7.7 - 11mm.
