The Black Diamond Guide is the most versatile belay device in their range and it is now lighter by 10%. The auto-block release hole is large enough to accept a small carabiner. Multiple friction modes provide the optimal amount of stopping power when lowering or rappelling, and the device's guide mode lets you belay one or two seconding climbers off an anchor. The oval-ized anchor-hole and changes in design means the device now feeds rope and allows you to pull rope more easily when in guide mode.
