Petzl GriGri Belay Device

New for 2019, the Petzl GrIGri is a streamlined amalgamation of the GriGri 2 and the GriGri+. Designed for climbing at the crag or at the climbing wall, the Petzl GriGri allows for superior rope control and extra smooth lowering thanks to its compact, smooth design. So how is it different to the GriGri 2 and the GriGri+? Essentially it takes the camming unit from the GriGri+ but doesn't include the extra safety features. Updates include a lower-profile thumb catch, bigger rope capacity, user diagrams engraved on the inside and outside of the plate, as well as a space to write your name. The result is a versatile, lightweight belay device with superior lowering properties. It's exceptionally smooth and the perfect upgrade for climbers who're used to belaying with a GriGri 2.

GriGri Belay Device

At a Glance

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
- the assisted braking function is activated when a climber falls, the device pivots, the rope tightens and the cam pinches and blocks the rope. Holding the brake side of the rope helps engage the cam, therefore it is important to always hold the brake side of the rope
- compatible with dynamic single ropes 8.5 to 11 mm, optimised for 8.9 to 10.5 mm
- rope installation diagram engraved on both the interior and exterior of the device

Exceptional comfort during descents:

- the ergonomic handle allows you to easily lower someone
- smooth descent control is achieved thanks to the progressive action of the cam

Designed for experienced belayers:

- simple to use for belaying both lead or top-rope climbers
- optimally balanced design: lightweight (175 g), compact and durable

Absolutely the standard for belay devices

Gold Standard Belay Device

If you're considering buying a grigri, you should stop reading this and buy a grigri. Every climbing gym you go to will use one. Most places that teach you to lead climb will teach you with a grigri. There are advantages and disadvantages to other belay devices, both assisted braking and not but the grigri is the gold standard and very safe. The grigri + is good if you'll be setting up lots of top ropes or will be climbing often with new climbers who have never belayed before but in my opinion it's not worth the extra cost.


Grigri is awesome device and totally worth it, btw I couldn’t find cheaper than the price they offer here , so just go for it !


Simply the best. Don't look further.

Needs no Introduction

A more perfected version of the previous grigris. Lighter , smaller and just as easy to use.
