comment What is the strength of an ATC belay device when used in a guide mode/multi-pitch setup?
@Sue it's just the Petzl Reverso 4 product page in case it moves again.

Do you really want to test this theory out? Haha 😝

Well hello there Mr. Physics Teacher! :) So it sounds like the more likely scenario is that the rope will slide through the ATC can could cause a rope burn/ human failure. I really was just wondering if the companies had load tested the devices on those clips used for guide mode (carabiners all have rating on them so I was wondering why those didn't). The weight is technically passing through the ATC's guide clip on to the other anchors etc. so hopefully they designed them well so that they are not the weakest link in the chain, so to speak. Thanks.

That's a good point. I hadn't thought of two followers.. Thanks for answering my curiosity. :)
