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.


Looking for a lighter, more compact version of the ATC-Guide for fast mountain routes? At 7 grams lighter, the ATC-Alpine Guide has the same grooved sides for ease and control while lowering a leader or descending. The oval anchor-hole feeds rope easily when the device is in guide mode.

  • 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 6.9 to 9mm diameter ropes
