    The Petzel GriGri is an exceptional tool that can be put into action in a number of scenarios. Working on top anchors, doing rescues, or even operating a zip line the GriGri is an awesome tool.

      Easy to use with very clear instructions and diagrams on it! As I high rise window cleaner I would recommend any of PETZL's commercial or sport gear. I have been using the GriGri for 2 years now and would never use another belay device!

      Great for belaying comfortably with a range of rope sizes. I have seen someone deck while be belayed on toprope so it does not replace an attentive belayed!

        I got my Gri Gri 2 two weeks ago and I feel more comfortable when I belay for others now. So much better than the traditional device I was using.

        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.
