What is an ATC in Climbing?


We use belay device as a mechanical equipment used to control a rope during Climbing. And an ATC or Air Traffic Controller is a type of belay and rappel device introduced by Black Diamond, which is a tubular device gives more area and steeper angles to creat friction and stopping power .
The ATC has found the most commonly used type of belay device, and so the model name of ATC has become synonymous with tubular belay devices.

The original Black Diamond Air Traffic Controller device debuted in 1993, designed by Chuck Brainerd,
The improvement over plate devices is that plates could move down and lock against the carabiner when the rope was pulled hard. By using a tube instead of a plate, the slots were a half-inch above the carabiner and now the rope could be fed under tension. This made belay mechanics much easier. The sharper edge also generates more friction, giving the belayer better control.
Hope you find it helpful and appropriate ,and if you need any further information or tips about Rock climbing ,Gears,Shoes,accessories or anything else, you can have a look on this Climbing review Blog

What are the best belay device for solo climbing?


If you are looking for a partner to go for Rock climbing but you cannot find a single one, you should know about Solo climbing.
There are two types of solo climbing:
1:Free-solo: this means climbing without any ropes or other protection.
2:Roped-solo, as the named suggests, ropes are used in case of a fall.
Free solo climbing is extremely dangerous than roped soloing but proper rig can make a safe way for you.
Without tying a leader into the rope, the rope is tied of at the ground, or at a belay station on a multi pitch route. Controlling the rope can be done I many ways. My favoured way is with a Petzl Grigri, but there are other similar or related devices on the market. Lets have a look on them.
  • Petzl Grigri+: This Game Changer is pretty Similar to the previous series Grigri 2, cam inside the device pivots when the rope is pulled through quickly, cinching the rope tight and slowing or stopping it with anti-panic function as well.

  • Wild Country Revo : Pretty similar to the way a seatbelt works. To lock down on the rope when the rope spins the wheel at a high number of revolutions per second. it has been known as Beginner's Best Friend.

  • Trango Vergo : It narrows the space for rope and stops from moving, where two plates are designed to pivot under the force. Natural Motion controlling device

  • Mad Rock Lifeguard : In this light and reliable device is set oncamming mechanism, which has been installed to changing the angle of the rope when a strong tug on the climber's end of the rope pulls it up.

There are many more belay device you can find out in market ,what makes me more satisfied and user's recommended. i have mentioned some of them at here.

My son's rock climbing wall broke and we need to either fix it or find a rock climbing facility in the Phoenix Arizona area.


I am not very handy when it comes to fixing things but I am good when it comes to research and finding good deals. I read that you might also be looking for a rock climbing facility in Arizona. You can check out Phoenix Rock Gym. They have a huge facility specifically meant for rock climbing. The website which is Pogo Pass has some discounted passes for the Phoenix Rock Gym. If your looking to fix the rock wall maybe home depot would be a good start.

i think you should know ,choosing on Climbing is really a tricky decision .It more likely depends on the facts related with features to ensure comfort, proper fit, and security can facilitate any of these climbing types.
You should have mention your Experience on climbing but as you asked for specifically,
"Copperhead"
by Five Ten is a state-of-the-art design with a low profile toe that slips into tiny fissures. A Stealth patch adds durability and friction in all tight conditions.
But if you are a beginner on climbing , i would rather recommend you to go for " La Sportiva Mythos"
that will encourage you for discovering and enjoying the climbing sport. So, for those of you who can be interested to a rock climbing shoes,

Should I wear a helmet when rock climbing?


I am a firm believer that helmets are a indispensable part of your climbing rack. If you are in a toppeler situation or bouldering it probably isn't super necessary because you aren't going to take the kinds of falls on your head. However, if you're doing any sort of lead climbing, I do believe that helmets are really serious.
