The grigri might not work how you imagine it does



This video is also good, to show to people with non-approved belay techniques

I still use the original gri gri.  I have found it superior in (al)most all applications.  I understand that the patent expired, but i imagine Petzl would still sell a bunch of them if offered.

Thought these videos were brilliant and should be watched by anyone who sport climbs or regularly uses a grigri. Obviously you should always have your hand on the brake rope but what was interesting was how quickly and easily it failed in situations that I suspect most sport climbers can relate to…
