Designed for the experienced belayer, the GRIGRI Grey is a belay device with assisted braking designed for belaying both in the gym and at the crag. Compact and lightweight, it can be used with single ropes from 8.5 to 11 mm. The assisted braking function improves comfort while belaying, holding a climber or catching a fall. The design of the handled camming mechanism enables exceptional descent control.
Belay device with assisted braking, compatible with a broad range of single rope diameters, for both gym and crag:
- feeding slack and catching falls are done using standard belay techniques; always keep a hand on the brake-side of the rope

- rope installation diagram engraved on both the interior and exterior of the device

GriGriBy: Ryan Stallard on 8 October 2020The cadillac of belay devices. Once mastered this is the best addition to any rope climbers rack; and absolute peace of mind knowing your belayer is rocking out on one of these. So much peace of mind knowing that in case of an emergency you're belayer is unlikely to manage to drop you to the ground due to poor rope management, rope burn, being unconscious, ect. Yes it is fiddly to get used to, but after a period of time you will fail to grasp how you ever managed long days at the crag without one. Also great for ascending/ rapping fixed lines.
