Rocksolid guarantee

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.


A versatile belay/rappel device with a guide-mode for bringing up 1 or 2 seconds. Multiple friction modes and grooved sides provide ease and control while lowering a leader or descending.

  • Hot forged aluminum body for strength with machined windows to keep it light
  • Oval anchor-hole feeds rope easily when in guide mode
  • Beefy cable holds its shape and resists getting caught up in the device
  • Recommended for use with 8.1 to 11mm diameter ropes
