Black Diamond ATC Pilot
When it comes to rope climbing, you want to make sure you trust your belayer and you want to trust the gear they are using. Black Diamond will help make sure you can trust the system with the new ATC Pilot. Featuring a slotted body, this device helps to capture and hold the rope by allowing the carabiner to shift up the device to pinch the rope more firmly. This allows more of the friction to be transferred away from the belayer and onto the device. This means the belayer still needs to keep a hand on the brake strand, as with all devices, however, it allows for more security by providing a built-in backup for the belayer.
