Perfect for gym lead belaying

I use this for gym lead belaying. My climbing partner and I have a big weight difference and while I've always caught him using a standard tube style device, I like that the ATC pilot gives me an extra bit of peace of mind. The assisted brake just works - catches and also means less effort while he's hanging trying to work out the problem. Lowering takes a little bit of time to become super smooth. I like this over the smart alpine even though the concept is the same, because the thumb guide is more comfortable and device generally feeds smoother. I also don't use the gri gri because it's just too big for my hands for a lead belay. Only con is that it's heavy and clunky - so really limited to gym use.

We won't do anything without asking your permission first. These are your images, we just hope they can help future outdoor enthusiasts find the gear they need.
