20 Most Recent Petzl America Grigri Belay Device D14 Questions & Answers


Straight from the Instruction Manual: This product is a belay device for
the leader or second on a rope.
It has been developed for indoor
wall climbing or for climbing
on well-protected sport routes
where anchors meet the UIAA
standard. It should not be used
for mountaineering or adventure
climbing.

Any modification is a unknown change in the devices individual load bearing rating, and a compromise in the safey of anyone who would be connected to said device at any time after the modification.

Hi,

The Vertex Vent and Vertex Best are the only two of Petzl's range that are rated for commercial use. The rest are sport models..

The link here is for their site..

Any half decent outdoor/climbing shop will be able to sort you out. Don't be surprised though if shops don't stock the commercial range as therer's not a lot of turnover on it. A good store will be able to get in gear for you to try..
Personally, I have come across a few people (tree surgeons and mountain rescue mostly) who will still choose the sport models for the lightness and less bulk but we always advise them not to.
If you are in the EU then the ratings on Petzl's site will be correct but if you are in the US or AU then it would be worth checking the local regulations before purchase. I don't see it being a problem though, Petzl are globally accepted.
Either way, it could be an insurance nightmare if there is an accident involving someone wearing gear that's not covered..

Hope this helps..

Its pretty simple to buy a rock climbing shoe from a physical shop or brand shop also you can place an order from your home on their online shop .
But before you go for a purchase make sure about the primary considerations:
Shoe type: It depends on your experience and expertise for which type of shoe you should choose for climbing .

There are There are three types of rock climbing shoe based on the shape:
1) Neutral2) Moderate3) Aggressive
Features: Before you take any decision on purchasing climbing shoe , check out features as what has been provided in it.like laces, straps,inner,outer, linings,last and rubber affect the performance of a shoe.

Size fitting: Climbing shoe need to be fit snug to hold on with full strength.
but It's a common mistake for first-timers to buy climbing shoes that are way too tight. Old-school wisdom and advice was to cram your little piggies into the smallest pair possible in an effort to help you climb better.
Hope you find it helpful and appropriate.

If you are looking for a partner to go for Rock climbing but you cannot find a single one, you should know about Solo climbing.
There are two types of solo climbing:
1:Free-solo: this means climbing without any ropes or other protection.
2:Roped-solo, as the named suggests, ropes are used in case of a fall.
Free solo climbing is extremely dangerous than roped soloing but proper rig can make a safe way for you.
Without tying a leader into the rope, the rope is tied of at the ground, or at a belay station on a multi pitch route. Controlling the rope can be done I many ways. My favoured way is with a Petzl Grigri, but there are other similar or related devices on the market. Lets have a look on them.
  • Petzl Grigri+: This Game Changer is pretty Similar to the previous series Grigri 2, cam inside the device pivots when the rope is pulled through quickly, cinching the rope tight and slowing or stopping it with anti-panic function as well.

  • Wild Country Revo : Pretty similar to the way a seatbelt works. To lock down on the rope when the rope spins the wheel at a high number of revolutions per second. it has been known as Beginner's Best Friend.

  • Trango Vergo : It narrows the space for rope and stops from moving, where two plates are designed to pivot under the force. Natural Motion controlling device

  • Mad Rock Lifeguard : In this light and reliable device is set oncamming mechanism, which has been installed to changing the angle of the rope when a strong tug on the climber's end of the rope pulls it up.

There are many more belay device you can find out in market ,what makes me more satisfied and user's recommended. i have mentioned some of them at here.

Make sure that no matter what direction you are facing under the snow that you have made an air hole/pocket with your hands. This is because most avalanche related deaths are caused by suffocation not bodily injury.
