The Petzl GriGri 2 belay device is a classic, reliable and intuitive assisted braking belay tool for sports climbers. Offering that extra level of support to the belayer, the GriGri 2 is suitable for use during either top roping or leading. How does it work? Should the climber fall unexpectedly, the belayer holds the brake side of the rope, and the cam pivots and pinches the rope, increasing the braking action. Although the GriGri 2 does not take away the responsibility to belay safely, the GriGri 2 helps the belayer in more unexpected situations by offering that extra level of support. With an ergonomic, clean design and an easy to use patented handle for gentle descending, this is a reliable, sturdy and undoubtably essential piece of gear for your climbs.
