    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.

    • Durable stainless steel cam and friction plates stand up to years of use

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    So I have been waiting to buy a grigri for a few months now, but since I work in a rock climbing gym, I have been using the gyms grigri 2s. Since using this new grigri, it is pretty much a smoother version of the grigri 2. I am dissapointed in the color shown above and the color I recieved. This product shouldnt be listed as red, maybe sunburnt orange. It was kind of the only reason I decided to buy this grigri in the first place.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Designed for the experienced belayer, the GRIGRI is a belay device with assisted braking designed for belaying both in the gym and at the crag. Compact and lightweight, it can be used with single ropes from 8.5 to 11 mm. The assisted braking function improves comfort while belaying, holding a climber or catching a fall. The design of the handled camming mechanism enables exceptional descent control.

    More Cam Tension Than A GG2?

      It feels to me as though there's more tension to the Cam, meaning it would facilitate giving slack rope to a lead without having to resort to holding down the Cam with one's fingers as often as with the GG2 or GG+. I'd be interested in the opinion of Mr. Bowen, the Gearhead below me, or another Backcountry Savant on this topic.
      As for me, I could never get the hang of using a GG+. Pulling back on the fat 11mm rope at my Gym kept tripping the anti-panic feature, causing jerky lowers of friends; so I would never agree to belay a stranger with my GG+. Looking forward to the smooth action of the progressive Cam on this new model.

      I noticed the same thing with giving slack. Used my new grigri today for the first time. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to feed slack to a lead climber. I’ve always hated and avoided lead belaying with a grigri because it was too finicky but this new model isn’t really any harder than my atc.
