Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


The evolution of what many consider to be the definitive belay device for most climbing days. The ATC-XP features 2 toothed notches on one side to provide holding power for catching, lowering, or rappelling. The other side is smooth, just like the original ATC, to allow low-friction payout when rappelling.
