The Petzl Gri Gri 2 is a belay device with assisted breaking for use with single dynamic climbing rope and is ideal for sport climbing and top roping, as it arrests a fall very quickly.
The Gri Gri 2 is 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the original Gri Gri. It works in the same way as any belay device in that the belayer always has one hand on the free end of the rope. During a fall the belayer holds the free end causing the cam to pivot and pinch the rope, increasing the braking action and bringing the the climber to a stop, this process happens very quickly during a fall.
When lowering a climber the belayer maintains control with the free end of the rope whilst easing back the handle. The handle design allows for a gradual release of the Cam allowing for a secure and smooth lower off.

Excellent bit of kit. Super easy to use and to instruct the Mrs on. Definitely recommed it if you think your belayer might take a leap on a big fall. Good for my confidence when leading sport routes and I have had no dramas with using a 9.1mm rope on it.
Excellent assisted braking system. I purchased this for my wife to feel more secure when belaying, she loves it as it is very simple to use, small, lightweight and design wise has no protruding parts that are likely to catch on anything. I will be purchasing another one they are so good.
I bought this to help with my partner belaying me on indoor walls. It works well and gives her (and me) the confidence to let her belay my heavier weight. Needs less force to be used to hold the climber and arrest a fall over a standard belay device. Allowing you to climb and rest longer knowing your partner isnít getting too tired.
Lightweight, high visibility colours and more ergonomic in your hand. Simple to use and although they can't state this, it provides fail-safe operation when used correctly. Whatís not to like about the second version of the Grigri.
This is a great item for belaying. Works much in the same style as a standard belay device but takes a huge range of single ropes and has the lovely Grigri locking device fitted to assist when a leader falls. Theoretically ensuring a long drop canít occur - however it is not fool proof!
Robust, good bright colours to find easily on your rack and very light and compact compared to the old model - really excellent piece of kit and one I would really recommend
AH, the Grigri 2! A little gem from Petzl. The old model was great, but the weight and versatility of this one makes it outstanding! It is just as durable and as functional, but lighter and takes a far wider range of ropes.
It can be used so much more easily also as it is so much more smooth on the belay and its locking action feels so much more secure! Brilliant!
Bought one of these the week it came out. So far so good. The lowering action is certainly more controlled than the old version. The weight decrease is a noticeable one, as is the size difference. The rope diameter advantage of the Gri Gri will Iím sure prove invaluable on sport climbing trips.
No question that itís worth getting one of these now!
