A more compact, lighter version of our versatile ATC-Guide, the ATC-Alpine Guide is built for smash and grab ascents in the mountains. At just 73 grams, this featherweight belay/rappel device is optimized for ropes between 8.1 and 8.5 millimeters in diameter yet works with ropes from 6.9 to 9mm. The oval-ized anchor-hole allows for easy feeding and pulling of rope, and the device's guide mode lets you belay one or two seconding climbers off an anchor. Multiple friction modes provide the optimal amount of stopping power when lowering or rappelling.

Designed for the smaller rope diameters of fast-and-light alpine missions, the 73g Black Diamond ATC-Alpine Guide belay device is an ultralight, compact version of the award-winning ATC-Guide.

- REI

Alpinists reveled in rappelling, belaying, and using the ATC's guide mode so much that Black Diamond designed its classic belay device with a lighter, more compact device. Compared to the original ATC Guide, the Black Diamond ATC - Alpine Guide accommodates skinnier ropes so you can alpine climb with twin ropes a little easier. Apart from that, it features the same handling as the original, just for skinnier ropes.
