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.


The Reverso is an ultralight device that has an autoblock configuration. It's excellent for multi-pitch rock and ice, and serviceable at the crag or gym. Bring up 1 or 2 seconds directly from the anchor with the autoblock feature.

  • Fits half ropes over 7.1mm, twins over 6.9mm, and singles 8.5–11mm
  • Carabiner hole allows weighted device to be unloaded with a carabiner only when in autoblock mode
  • Intuitive attachment point in autoblock mode and engraved usage diagrams
  • V-shaped channels increase friction for thinner ropes, and increase holding power in autoblock mode
  • Asymmetric side walls increase holding power in falls and on rappel, but allow rope to run smoothly when taking in slack
  • Won't kink the rope regardless of mode being used
