Product Highlights

This is a lightweight assisted braking tubular belay device that bridges the gap between standard ATCs and devices with moving parts, like the Grigri. When the climber falls, the Black Diamond ATC-Pilot assists with braking by rotating upwards to lock the rope, which can be easily unlocked by tilting the device downwards using the thumb pad. Whilst belaying a lead climber, this system allows you to use the thumb pad to decrease resistance, enabling you to pay out rope faster and more easily. As something in between a regular ATC and a “moving parts” device like the Grigri, the ATC-Pilot does everything you’d want it to: makes belaying easier and less tiring whilst not being too expensive or bulky.

Product Description

ATC Pilot

The lightweight Black Diamond ATC Pilot represents an advance in technology for the world of assisted braking devices. Providing an added level of security to your belay, the ATC Pilot threads similarly to other tubular belay devices. It accommodates ropes from 8.7-10.5mm. The durable steel braking surface has no moving parts, and the smooth and secure control allows for gradual lowering. With an easy rope payout, the ATC Pilot makes single-pitch projecting burns less tiring for the belayer and more secure for the climber.
