Topic - Mammut Smart Vs Climbing wall attendants

danielb - on 29 Sep 2012
I've been using a mammut smart for a while now but since moving to Sweden I've been having issues with climbing wall attendants who really don't seem to like how the handling of a smart works e.g. touching the device especially when paying out for a leader. They usually try to insist I belay with it like its an ATC (which doesn't work for lead climbing) and its getting to the point I'm thinking about getting a GriGri (which is much more common than the smart) just to be left alone for a whole session..

The following is the official handling guide for a smart and as you can see you are meant to touch the device allot compared to an ATC style device: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A684wbremic
