    Giga Jul Belay Device

    At the flip of a switch, the Edelrid Giga Jul Belay Device changes from a standard tube device to an assisted braking device for more versatility whether you're climbing multi-pitch or sport. As an assisted braking device, the Giga Jul grants greater friction that bites down on the climbing rope when lead climbers fall. As a standard tube, the Giga Jul can rappel with single and twin ropes smoother, and you can clip the Giga Jul to anchors for a more-secure top rope belay on multi-pitches. There's a small eyelet on the opposite side of the anchor loop to give slack when you're belaying from the anchors.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The beautiful function of the Giga Jul is to easily swap from a traditional tube style device, over to geometry assisted braking device. I have found having the dual options has been great for a few reasons -

    1. The security of the geometry assisted braking for when I am belaying my partner on a pitch that I know they are putting in the effort. If they do peel off, I have that extra peace of mind knowing the geometry assisted is there to brake it all up.

    2. Having the ability to belay as a tube device for very smooth feeding and keeping me honest at each belay is awesome. I learned on a tube device and they are easier to feed slack quickly - so on easier pitches where my partner may be climbing low 5 grade, I prefer the tube side. It also lets you belay with twins a bit easier/smoother.

    3. The updated geometry of this devices is much smoother while belaying from the top in guide mode. The rope has an easier time pulling through.

    4. Rappelling - I find myself always rappelling in geometry assisted mode. I like the psuedo "back up" - but it does come at the cost of a little bit of a learning curve and can be "Sticky" - if you are seasoned, want to use a prussik/kleimheist as a backup - then the tube side for rappel function the same as a traditional tube device.

    The size range this thing fits is fantastic.

    My favorite new do everything device by a long shot.
