The Yates Rocker works very well within the manufacturerís recommended uses. I have found it to be a good belay device to bring up a second in that it offers a dynamic grab, does not chew up the rope sheath and works well with 8 mm icy ropes. Itís not as easy to belay a leader with it but itís workable with practice. It is also handy as a rescue ascender and a lightweight and useful part of your crevasse rescue bag of tricks.

Chossdog gives it 4 tail wags
