Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device Description
Brand : Petzl
Season : Perennial
Code : 7000611
The Petzl GriGri 2 has long been a favourite among sports climbers and those that want the added security offered by an assisted braking belay device. It works equally well for lead climbing and top roping, and can be used on ropes from 8.9 to 11 mm (optimized for 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm ropes).
The GRIGRI 2's descent control is smooth and easy, as is the belay action with effortless pay out, meaning the climber can concentrate on upward progress without being hampered by the hesitating belayer. The belay technique is the same as for traditional belay plates, yet in the event of a leader fall the GRiGRI 2 will arrest the rope automatically.
At less than 200g, the GRIGRI 2 is also light and compact. Its actually 20% lighter and 25% more compact than the original GRIGRI.
