Northeast Alpine Start
“It’s an excellent choice for a new belayer due to its intuitive use and extra layer of security it provides while maintaining a simple design.”
“Black Diamond ATC Pilot Belay/Rappel Device - Black Review”
“Works best for toproping scenarios, a good choice for gyms or programs who want a bit more safety than a traditional tube device but don't want to buy mutiple active locking devices.”
“Overall, the Pilot gets my thumbs-up for single-pitch climbing. Whether in the gym or outside, I most like it for belaying my climbing partner on her “proj,” or for those just learning to climb.”
“A solid one trick pony”
