Old dog, new device

About Me Avid Climber

Pros

  • Good For Sport Climbing
  • Quick to open
  • Simple

Cons

  • Not For Multi-pitch
  • Not For Top Belay

Best Uses

  • Indoor climbing
  • Outdoor climbing
  • Single Pitch Sport Routes

Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

I've been using the BD ATC Guide for years, before that the Reverso. My sport climbing partner encouraged me to get the GriGri. The ATC is, IMHO, much better for belaying up a second and for rappelling and it will continue to be my multi-pitch device. But for belaying a leader on single pitch sport routes the GriGri is fast and safe, a little better control.

    Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

    This device is accepted in every gym out there, and in some of the best gyms, it is the only device allowed.

    Another benefit of owning this device is the instructional video available on Petzl's website. I watch it two or three times a year just to keep my belaying technique state-of-the-art.

    Comments about Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device:

    One of the best uses I found for this device is rapid slack for up, down, up training on indoor climbs. It is also incredibly fun to repel with. Over all its a tad heavy but an excellent all around tool for your climbing arsenal and well worth the money

        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.

          • Outdoor climbing

          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

            Best Uses

            • Indoor climbing

            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.
