What Sundog said is correct - it's not really the device, but the way its used. That said, we did ban the Gri Gri because it was misused a lot more than most. Petzl has since recommended a new method for it, and so it is more likely to be used correctly these days. We are always reviewing our policies and there may be a change coming.

But at the end of the day, people need to take responsibility for learning how to climb, and belay, safely. We test people's belaying but can't stand beside them every time they belay. We offer lessons and coaching for those who need to learn.

Please learn the skills, and be attentive every time you belay!
