Petzl GriGri Belay Device Wins SuperTopo Editors Choice Award

MILL VALLEY,, one of the most popular climbing web sites in the world, revealed Petzl GriGri as the winnde of the 2010 Editors' Choice award for the belay device category. The staff rated the Petzl GriGri after extensive field testing in Yosemite, Colorado, and Utah. The GriGri also underwent extensive side by side tests with other belay devices to evaluate key performance metrics such as ease of use, performance, packability, durability and waterproofness. The complete review is available on

According to gear tester Chris McNamara, "The Petzl GriGri is Editors' Choice because it is simply awesome in most climbing situations. Seriously. What device do you think Chris Sharma was belayed on when he fired Jumbo Love? What device do you think Ammon McNeely is belayed on when he smashes El Cap records? Planning on belaying off the anchor, throwing rope out to a leader? The list goes on and on because the GriGri works great. It doesn’t work on ice ropes, and does not work as well on ropes less than 10mm. (Warning: Using ropes below 10mm goes against Petzl’s advice, so do so at your own risk.) The GriGri is the hardest working piece on our rack. All that said, after years of dominating the market the GriGri faces stiff competition from the Trango Cinch. The Cinch is recommended for smaller ropes, is lighter, more compact and is a better value. For gym and crag climber we still prefer the GriGri. But on big walls and multi-pitch routes, the Cinch might edge ahead."

About SuperTopo offers the most detailed and exhaustive side-by-side comparison climbing gear review in the industry. Each product is evaluated on a common set of metrics, tested both hands-on and in a lab setting, and then field tested exhaustively on Yosemite's Big Walls, The Alaska Range, Cascades and other serious climbing areas around the world.
