Perfect for Beginner/Advanced Sport Climbers

The GriGri+ may look similar to the GriGri 2, but it's definitely a different beast. The innocuous dial on the side initiates a subtle but impressive shift in performance depending on whether you are belaying lead or top ropes. For advanced users this may not make a huge difference, but for a newer belayer this subtle change will make the learning curve a lot less steep.

Much more noticeable is the new safety lever - this clever bit of tech means there is no possibility of dropping the climber by accidentally pulling too hard; perfect for those learning how to use the device.

As usual from Petzl you can expect a reliable catch and a smooth lower, but the new design also makes rope feeding much smoother across the size ranges and allows for more 'fluid' rope movement. The reinforced steel plate along the right hand side offers increased durability and promises a longer term use.

With all this new technology comes a compromise - a noticeable increase in weight. Whilst not a massive increase, it is considerably more than the GriGri 2 and as such will be unlikely to find its way into the packs of climbers looking to cut down on weight.

For gym use and redpointing at sport crags, however, this device has definitely found it's niche.
