new Petzl GRIGRI + compatible with single
ropes from 8.9-10.5mm. This necessary device
helps you belay the leader or second with
a mechanical assist and more confidence
as well as rappel smoothly*. Operation is
simple: open like a pulley, insert the rope
then shut and and attach to your harness
belay loop with a locking carabiner. The
reduction handle offers exceptional descent
control. Two usage modes to choose from,
depending on need: top-rope belay or lead
belay. The top-rope belay mode and the anti-panic
handle make for a more comfortable belay,
making the GRIGRI + particularly suitable
Use both hands to pay out / take in rope
- which feeds smoothly. You can even pull
out rope for an advancing leader while maintaining
grip on the Grigri and the "braking
side" of the rope. Should the climber
fall, rope tension will rotate the internal
cam and apply the necessary friction for
a quick stop - a great assist to belayer.
To "lower" a climber or rappel
- grip the free end of rope (as you would
with any device), then slowly pull back
the release handle to initiate the descent.
Climb with new friends at the gym, family
or partners of any ability or size and know
that the Grigri 2 will help you give...
and get ... a better belay. Instructions
