Product Description

Self-braking system: if the rope suddenly comes under tension (e.g. in a fall), the cam pivots to pinch the rope, thus helping the belayer stop the climber's fall. Usage is similar to that of conventional belay devices: giving/taking slack is done by using both hands to slide the rope through the device; falls are held by holding the free end of the rope; for lowering and rappelling, the rate of descent is controlled by the hand holding the free end of the rope (the rope is released with the handle).

Regarding how the actual device works, no flaws or complaints.

For the initial feed of rope through the device, the Grigri is ingrained with clear directional diagrams.

This and the original Grigri are the two most common assisted-locking belay devices. I've had some experience with the original, a few weeks with this, and none with the Trango Cinch or the like, so take my impressions for what they're worth.

The major reason you'd buy an assisted-locking device is for the extra safety margin. The Grigri has a locking cam that halts the rope when it pulls out at a certain speed. That's a tremendous boon where the belayer is inattentive or inexperienced, or where the belayer can't see the climber. It's also next to impossible to get the webbing of your brake hand stuck in it, as I've seen twice occur with sudden falls to ATCs in the last three months. And when your climber wants to hang, it's a lot easier to sit and chill when you don't need to keep constant heavy braking tension.

Relative to the old Grigri, this one is significantly smaller and lighter. The old one could feel like an anchor if left on the harness for difficult climbs. This one, not so much. The friction lip is also a bit wider and easier to slot your fingers under, a helpful fulcrum if you're holding the cam down to feed rope. Inside, the rope grooves are sharper and tighter, which allows Petzl to officially support thinner ropes, but has some downstream implications I get into below.

The belay learning curve for top-roping is very short. For the initial feed of rope through the device, the Grigri is ingrained with clear directional diagrams. Taking rope is identical to what you'd do with an ATC.

Feeding rope for lead climbs takes a bit more practice. Conventional belay technique has your brake hand on the rope at all times.

Fantastic construction and quality with incredible company to back it's product. I recommend this for some one looking for an option when it comes to belaying on outdoor top roping. I prefer using a traditional ATC device when belaying lead personally. The gri gri can hose your climber if your not proficient with it, it tends to lock up if your too agressive/fast with your movements.

Love it. It's solid, it works, gives me some comfort when I am climbing with a less experienced belayer. Its a bit smoother than my click-up which I like when using the fat ropes at the gym. I still like the natural feel using the click-up, but the grigri is a great addition especially at the gym where the cypher click-up will stick sometimes on the really fat ropes.

Works great on my 9.5mm rope. Snaps tight if jerked. Great first-learning tool and confidence builder while learning to set anchors and learn ropework. Now I can learn more with traditional ATC cinch to reduce friction on rope and extend rope life, but will always use this in critical situations. Easy to test the snap-jerk without putting your entire weight on it.

be advised: the DVD is more entertainment, than intructioal. GriGri was nice, excellent condition and very shiny... overall well-made product.

On the pricey side, but that's what you pay for quality. Easy to use and generally safer, especially for someone first learning lead belaying. Feeding can be a bit more challenging than with an ATC but it's quick to learn. Highly recommended.

It's smaller and lighter than the first Gri Gri, but still feels pretty solid. The wider range of useable ropes is nice, too.

Works as it should -- fantastically. The cam catches quickly on any fall I've been using it for so far. I use a 9.8 mm rope, and it bites really well on that.

Really make sure you know what you're doing with this (or whoever is belaying you does), I've heard some horror stories of guys blocking the cam to feed slack and taking their braking hand off, resulting in a near free fall. This is not an "auto" device, but rather, an assisted device.
