Petzl GRIGRI +
The GriGri + is Petzl's latest version of the world's most popular assisted-braking device, now designed to be easier and safer to use by beginners. The GriGri + now features an anti-panic handle that, if the handle is let go or pulled too far back, will brake and stop the descent automatically, making it more ideal for the novice user who isn't familiar with GriGri technique. A patented switch has now been introduced to allow the belayer to switch between lead belaying and top roping modes for more comfortable and secure top roping, and the useable rope width has increased to make the device compatible with all single rope sizes.
With a focus on safety and security, the Petzl GriGri + is suited to both beginners who are either looking for an easy-to-use assisted-braking device or for a stepping stone into proper GriGri technique. It's also ideal for groups, such as rental programs, schools, and climbing gyms, who are in need of a more intuitive assisted-braking device that reduces the chance of human error.

Great Belay device for Beginners. Slightly heavy, but who can put a weight to safety.
Would feel comfortable handing this off to a newbie.
The Violet colour really pops.
A great device for those who want to feel extra safe with their belaying or climbing.
The GriGri + have the new design have 3 color orange, purple and gray. The device allowed using 8.5mm to 11mm single rope. So that It was very suitable for me that want using the thinnest rope. And the GriGri + have the anti-pinch function, let me feel peace of mind in the load down speed, increasing the safety.
The extra safety features convinced me to purchase it. I had lots of experience with the Grigri 2, but still decided to get this one, mostly because I climb with coleagues that are less experienced.
Great device, smooth operating with my 9.8 rope, but most importantly, a reliable piece of gear. Good job, Petzl.
Great gear! It combines reliability and ease of operation. Even my 10-year- old daughter can easily cope with the role of belayer using this product. Out of competition!
I see no reason to not get the GRIGRI+, especially if you are starting out. The additional safety features are great.
