  • Simple

Cons

Best Uses

  • Long Climbs
  • Seconds on thick ropes

Comments about Liberty Mountain Adventure GiGi Belay and Rappel Device:

I also saw a guide using the GiGi. The BD Guide is the most versatile product of this type (it will also belay leaders which the GiGi won't) but the GiGi produces significantly less drag than the Guide while bringing up one or two seconds on >10mm ropes. The GiGi also works well on thinner ropes, but so does the Guide. This is easily worth the low cost and weight penalty of carrying both this device and a Guide (or leave the Guide at home if you're only leading and lead belay with a munter hitch in an emergency).

I expend way less energy bringing up seconds and have more strength available for climbing now that I rack the Kong GiGi.

    Comments about Liberty Mountain Adventure GiGi Belay and Rappel Device:

    I got turned on to the gigi by a guide and love it for belaying a second on multipitch routes. it autolocks and makes belaying very easy after you have just burned yourself out on a hard pitch. You just pull the rope on through like you would with the expensive devices. And it is so inexpensive particularly when compared to other autolocker devices. The simplicity and verstility of this device are amazing. You can use it in so many ways and there are no moving parts to give you trouble, it is maintenance free unlike the more expensive autolocking devices.
    you won't regret buying this
