Why We Like the Grigri Belay Device

Petzl's Grigri has become a standard in the climbing community over the past decade. Climbing gyms now test on them, and a lot of elite climbers rely on their belayers to use the Grigri for its dependable assisted braking and slack-feeding. Petzl simply nailed the balance between assisted braking and slack-feeding with this contemporary model of the Grigri Belay Device. For this newest model, Petzl expanded the rope diameter by optimizing the use specifically for ropes ranging from 8.5 to 11mm. After doing all the research, there really isn't a larger rope diameter ideal for ropes as skinny nor as thick as the modern Grigri. Compared to the Grigri+, this specific model is ideal for experienced belayers and advanced climbers.

I?ve used it every week since purchased

I've put it through the wringer

Simple and straight forward. I work at a rock climbing gym and have belayed people of all weights, even ones almost 100 pounds heavier and I?ve had no issues at all! I don?t get careless with it like I?ve seen people do, and I don?t recommend it, but the added safety feature is definitely a plus!! I highly recommend!

This is # 2

I've used it several times

This is replacing my original Petzl Grigri. This latest and greatest version is fantastic! Very smooth and allows you to feed rope quickly on lead climbing. I love it!

The best

I've put it through the wringer

It's simple to use and extremely reliable and safe. Rappelling and belaying just got easier. Just make sure you know how to use this as it does not have the safety backup the + version has, so you don't want to pull the handle back all the way!

The New Standard

I've used it several times

The first time I used a grigri was at my climbing gym as they have recently required everyone to use them instead of your regular tube-style belay device. It is a great little piece of gear to have and things flow smoother. I especially like it when I am teaching people how to belay as it adds that extra layer of protection on top of the standard safety precautions that need to be taken when belaying.
