        Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

        I've been climbing since the early 70's and I always wanted a belay device that was as reliable and as easy to use as the GriGri. The only thing they could do to make this better would be to make a left handed version.

          Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

          Love using it on my 9.8mm lead rope. A gym near me has static ropes and they feed poorly through the GriGri, but they don't go through any belay device easily. Otherwise, I love using it and it is definitely my choice belay device for lead or TR belays. I've belayed with a GriGri 1 for over a year and the only difference I find is that the GriGri 2 is smaller and lighter, yet just as easy to use.

          • Top rope

          Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

          When first using the Gri, I recommend breaking it in with top rope. Very sticky and tight, so it can put strain on a lead climber who needs more slack quickly. Great Belay Device though. Easy to follow pic on the side helps for beginners. Great if you're light or climb with heavier people. A lot lighter then previous Gri, and just all around solid feel.

          Easy to use an bullet proof

            Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

            The Gri Gri 2 is a simple device that is easy to use and bullet proof. It is well built and holds a belay without allowing the rope to slip. Also, easy to lower a descending climber either by lifting the lever and holding the rope over the channel bulge, or by pressing down on the area where the lever attaches to the device. I'm a new climber and use the Gri Gri 2 for top rope belaying, both indoor and outdoor. The biggest advantage to the device is that you can rest while the climber pauses when trying to get past a crux, as opposed to the Black Diamond ATC device where you have to actively hold the belay.

                Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

                I own the original grigi & can verify that the grigri 2 does have a bigger "sweet spot",which makes for a less stressful rappel. My 5 yr old grandson,who is autistic can rappel smoothly with it.

                  Amazing upgrade from the original GriGri. Lighter weight, smaller size, larger range of rope diameters. This was a no brainer, the best belay device hands down. So much control on repels too. I trust anyone to belay me now, after I show them how to use this device, so smooth with lots of control. The instruction guide is simple and informative, a must read before use.
