The Black Diamond Guide is the most versatile belay device in their range. It is now even lighter thanks to windows machined through the body. The auto-block release hole has been enlarged 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.

Multiple friction modes for belay and rappel.
Machined windows through device for weight savings.
Auto-block release hole accepts small carabiners.
Durable cable holds its shape and resists getting caught up between ropes.
Guide mode works with one or two climbers ascending and descending.
Dependable and smooth operation in all conditions, handling ropes from 7.7 to 11 mm. 

This product is available for pre order and will be shipped as soon as it arrives in stock in our warehouse.

Works as advertised. No complaints at all :) the toothed profile makes locking off the rope a breeze but does make feeding the rope out a bit harder until you get used to it!

This was requested as a Christmas present by my son who is climbing in Australia. He knows it's a good product as he had previously borrowed one. It was a pleasure to purchase it for him from Banana Fingers at a competitive price and with the expert advice from the sales staff. I also like the choice of stock on the site. I will be back!

So far only used in bottom rope belaying at indoor wall. Good device, but way stiffer than an old-school BD ATC, the two standard (not auto-block) belay modes do behave differently, and it's smooth enough in operation.

If you're looking for the world's number one manual belay device this is probably it. Light in weight and well engineered it will do everything you will ever require in a belay device of this type. Thanks also to bf for the fine customer experience.
