Love it!

I love this grigri! It's super easy to use, I'm brand new to climbing and I picked it up and started using it with no problems!

A Must Have

If you're going to be climbing hard sport routes then you need a grigri. When my partners are hangdogging or whipping for extended periods of time, the grigri just saves a whole lot of hassle as compared to an atc. Be careful that you do not let the grigri lull you into lazy belay habits, the ease of use creates complacent belayers.

The best of the best

When I first got into climbing my brother told me that as soon as I used a grigri i would get one and never look back, and that’s the truth! Once I used his I went and got one the same day. I have used mine for a long time now and I haven’t had any complaints. Whether you are climbing multipitch, sport, trad, or are just getting into the sport and climb top rope you CAN NOT go wrong with purchasing a grigri.

The only device I use now

This device is wonderful. I use it for everything. Lead, top rope, belaying From above, it will keep you and your buddies safe. I still keep an atc for rapping, but I use this to belay everyone. I love using it because it gives me that extra sense of security in keeping my climber safe.
The only thing bad I have to say about it is that it does not handle fat ropes well. Anything above 9.8 mm rope and it gets a little dificult to belay with.

The standard in the industry. Any other belay device should be benchmarked off this. The AL wear plate is usually the death of these but thats only after a long time.

What is there really to say

One the the best devices out there. Great for belay, great for rigging, and many many other applications. However, it is very important you know how to properly use this device before using it. Make sure you receive the proper training.


Great product, for begginers and for advanced climbers aswell. I don’t think it has as many changes from the last edition, but still worth buying it


As it stands I’m currently using the Petzl reverso but when I first started climbing the grigri was my go-to belay device. The built in assisted breaking function makes belaying a lot easier for me on the ground and safer for my climber on the wall especially when catching falls. This device caters to just about every rope size making it a very versatile tool to have. Over the years Petzl has done a great job working with their design to make the grigri as light weight and compactable as possible so that’s definitely an added bonus. Overall this piece is an awesome addition to add to your rack’
