Technical Details

Product Description

Belay device with assisted braking for 8.9 to 11 mm rope. The GRIGRI 2 belay device with assisted braking capability is designed to facilitate belay maneuvers. The GRIGRI 2 works equally well for lead climbing and top-roping. It may be used on all single dynamic 8.9 to 11 mm ropes on the market (optimized for 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm ropes). Both compact and ultra-light, the GRIGRI 2 will accompany you on climbs around the world for many years. The GRIGRI 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent. One hand holds the rope and the other uses the handle to unlock the cam. The patented handle design allows a very gradual release of the rope. In combination with the strong braking action of the cam, it gives a great feeling of security when lowering a partner or rappelling.

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.

The GriGri is an outstanding belay device. I've used mine for a couple of years now, and it's performed perfectly. Here are 5 things I think you should know before buying a GriGri:

1. The diagrams on the device are very straight forward, but you need to take care when lacing it up with your rope. Friction goes one way on this device, so you need to get the rope going in the right direction.
2. Construction is sturdy. Yes there is some plastic in this device, but I've dropped mine several times and the outer shell is metal, taking the brunt of an impact. So it stands up well.
3. For basic belaying, you may find that this device adds some reassurance for the person on belay and the belayer. This is because it locks up more automatically than a standard belay tool.
4. Now, this may be controversial for some, I'm going to just put it out there that this can be used as a solo-belay tool when using a fixed top rope. This means threading it with the fixed point as the "climber," which may seem counter intuitive at first. But I've done this many times for two years now, and the device works well as a solo-tool. Some may find this unorthodox, but it's nice to have a belay device that LOCKS UP so you can be hands free.
5. The reason I've used this as a solo belay device is for jobs like roofing and tree work. So if you're looking for a tool to keep you on your rope and tight, this one works well.

Overall, I think you'll agree that Petzl makes great climbing gear. I have several belay devices, but this is my go-to tool in many situations.

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.
