Paying out slack with Gri Gri 12-Oct-2010 At 10:58:27 PM dimpet
I find that most of the time i can give slack without even touching the lever. I guess it really depends on the leader though. If its someone who pulls the rope quickly to clip then obviously it wouldn't work. But if they pull the rope nice and slowly the rope runs through just like a normal belay device.
