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 Air Traffic Controller (or ATC) is a hybrid-style device that offers smooth rope feeding when paying out rope or lowering. The design creates an assisted lock (it's not an autolocking device) but it allows you to transfer some of a climber's weight to the device for gradual lowering and smooth landings.

  • Made of durable abrasion-resistant stainless steel
  • High braking performance to catch falls safely
  • Smooth handling, even for larger-diameter ropes
  • For use with single ropes only
