The Soloist is designed to belay a climber while solo climbing. A directional cam allows rope to feed through automatically as the climber advances, yet locks solidly in a fall, without rope damage. The Soloist is suitable for lead climbing or top roping and you can also rappel with it. The Soloist comes with a detailed instruction manual which must be read and understood before using the device.

- This is not a device for novice climbers.
- It requires a strong understanding of advanced rigging techniques.
- The Soloist must be used with a chest harness because it will not lock when inverted, i.e. it will not reliably catch a head-first fall. This means that certain moves, such as heel hooks, should not be attempted if there is any chance of the hands blowing.
