Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device The Petzl GriGri 2 Belay Device is probably the second coolest piece of climbing gear we've ever carried, and features a new design that creates incredible control during descents. Petzl designed the GriGri 2 to perform during lead climbing and top roping, and it can be used with all single dynamic 8.9 mm to 11 mm climbing ropes on the market, and is optimized for 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm ropes. Want to know what makes the GriGri 2 work so great? Well, one of your hands holds the climbing rope while the other uses the handle to unlock the cam, and the patented handle design allows for a very gradual release of the rope. The handle design and strong braking action of the cam of the GriGri 2 combine to offer unbeatable control and an awesome feeling of security when rappelling or lowering a partner. The latest Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device has been designed to work with the thinner ropes that many climbers are using today it also features a new design that allows for smoother lowering.
