Use with symmetrical locking carabiners (Am'D or WILLIAM) to maximize efficiency
- A must have for multi-pitch climbing
The Reverso make belaying off of the anchor a breeze. This is the most versatile belay device one can buy.
The grooved slots on the break hand make friction on 2-rope rappels and catching climbers very responsive. The user can also flip the device around and have their break hand on the smooth side, as a normal ATC would. Clipping the Reverso into an anchor for the auto-camming feature is a must for multi-pitch climbs.
The Reverso is lighter and can handle smaller rope diameters (down to 8.9 for single ropes) than BD's version. Also, the orientation of the clip in point is such that the rope lies side to side in front of the belayer, as opposed to front and back with BD's ATC Guide.
A highly versatile, do it all belay and rappel device.
