Climbing - - THE CLIMB ECO GEAR -

As­sisted-brak­ing be­lay de­vices are ex­cel­lent for climbers of all abil­ity lev­els thanks to the in­creased safety (hence “as­sisted-brak­ing”), and the Grigri+ takes it to a whole new level. With a spe­cial­ized “anti-panic han­dle,” if the be­layer pulls the han­dle too far back—a com­mon sce­nario when the be­layer is sur­prised by a climber’s fall or low­er­ing too fast—this new func­tion will stop the de­scent im­me­di­ately. This makes it an ex­cel­lent choice for climbers who are just start­ing out as be­lay­ers, as well as any­one who is mak­ing the tran­si­tion from tube-style be­lay de­vices to as­sisted-brak­ing de­vices. Plus, the beefy stain­less steel wear plate makes it ex­tremely durable, and while it does add weight, it also adds years of use. To­prop­ers, be­gin­ners, and gym climbers will find the Grigri+ a wel­come ad­di­tion to their be­lay­ing ar­se­nal.
