Automatic or semi-automatic belaying devices are not allowed. (ISFC)
Well that should be easy considering not a single automatic or semi-automatic handheld belaying device exists, with the exception of roped soloing devices.[/quote
Halbautomat is widest used description of this kind of device in Europe and translates as semi-automatic. The IFSC is not part of the UIAA and donīt give a shit about whatever terminology they use this week, nor what you call them either.
