First Look: New Old Petzl GriGri for 2019

Petzl GriGri 2019

The Petzl GriGri is one of the most-used belay devices at gyms and crags and in 2019, Petzl will be releasing one similar to the original.

Designed for the experienced belayer, the Petzl GriGri 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.

Smooth descent control is achieved thanks to the progressive action of the cam.

We highly recommended this GriGri to any climber heading to the gym or crag next year.
