A slightly lighter and more compact version of one of the most popular multi-use belay/rappel devices from Black Diamond. This piece of gear further strikes a great balance between function, ease-of-use, lightweight, and is specifically geared towards climbing ropes that are from 8.1mm to 8.5mm in diameter while still being suitable for use with climbing ropes from 6.9mm to 9mm.  Easily belay off of your harness or an anchor.  Different modes allow you to vary the amount of friction and stopping power for use with a variety of ropes of different diameters, and for rappelling and lowering.  A lead climber can belay a seconding climbing partner directly off of a solid anchor, and then transfer the device to their harness when swapping leads to be able to rig the device to belay their climbing partner who will lead the next pitch without having to re-feed the climbing rope through the device.  A lead climber also has the ability to belay one or two seconding climbers simultaneously off of a solid anchor. This device also includes an auto-block release hole that accepts small carabiners for use in the guide mode whenever it is necessary to "un-lock" the device when it is fully weighted by a seconding climber while the lead climber is belaying that seconding climber directly off of a solid anchor.
