    Petzl GRIGRI 2 Rock Climbing Belay Device - The Petzl GRIGRI 2 belay device with assisted braking capability is designed to facilitate belay maneuvers. The GRIGRI 2 works equally well for lead climbing and top-roping. It may be used on all single dynamic 8.9 to 11 mm ropes on the market (optimized for 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm ropes). The belay technique is identical to classic belay technique, and the assisted braking capability facilitates arresting falls. A fall is stopped by tightening the hand on the free end of the rope. During fall arrest, the belayer holds the free end of the rope, the cam pivots and pinches the rope, increasing the braking action until the rope stops sliding. The GRIGRI 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent. One hand holds the rope and the other uses the handle to unlock the cam. The patented handle design allows a very gradual release of the rope. In combination with the strong braking action of the cam, it gives a great feeling of security when lowering a partner or rappelling. Built with a stainless steel friction plate and cam to ensure a long life for the device as well as being light weight. Diagrams for rope installation are engraved on the GRIGRI 2 (interior and exterior). Behind every great send, there's a great belayer. The GRIGRI 2 belay device from Petzl helps the belayer work in unison with the climber.

    Works great on my 9.5mm rope. Snaps tight if jerked. Great first-learning tool and confidence builder while learning to set anchors and learn ropework. Now I can learn more with traditional ATC cinch to reduce friction on rope and extend rope life, but will always use this in critical situations. Easy to test the snap-jerk without putting your entire weight on it.
