Petzl Grigri 2
Belay device with assisted braking, optimised for 9.4 to 10.3 mm ropes, the GriGri 2 is often used by centres and groups, and for high ropes courses.
The GRIGRI 2 belay device with assisted braking is designed to facilitate belay maneouvres. Both compact and lightweight, it is used with dynamic single 9.4 to 10.3 mm diameter ropes (possible with 8.9 mm to 11 mm diameters). The assisted braking improves belay comfort when working a route and when arresting a fall.
- hand motions are the same as with classic belay systems: both hands on the rope. A fall is stopped by tightening the hand on the free end of the rope.
- it may be optimally used on all 9.4 to 10.3 mm dynamic single ropes (possible for 8.9 mm to 11 mm ropes)
- diagrams for rope installation engraved on belay device (interior and exterior)
- compact and very light at 170 g
- Assisted braking: during fall arrest, the belayer holds the brake side of the rope, the cam pivots and pinches the rope, increasing the braking action until the rope stops sliding
- The GRIGRI 2's design allows for better descent control. 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.
- Weight: 170 g
- Rope compatibility: single ropes between 8.9 and 11 mm in diameter
