Topic - Direct belay with tube device

needvert on 22 May 2013
What are peoples thoughts on belaying directly off the anchor with a tube like device?

Recently wandered up, seconding, to find a reverso being used at about chest height, not in guide mode, no redirection.

I commented on it, partners reply was roughly if I fell he'd lift the brake hand above his head. I made mental note to not fall.

About a week later I spied the party behind us (different climbing partner) doing the exact same thing.


A munter hitch seems a far safer alternative to me.
