Show Description

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.
