Great all-around belay device
Review by: saxfiend, 2006-11-24
I picked up my ATC Guide several months back and have been happy with how it performs for belaying and rapping (even rapping on skinny doubles in the rain!), but it wasn't until recently that I got to make full use of it in guide mode. For bringing up a second on multi-pitch, it is terrific. It locks off very securely and makes it easier to deal with rope management as you belay. Like others, I've found using two biners through the keeper loop and rope loop makes feeding easier.
