Anyone modded a Gri Gri 2 for solo?

6:01:25 PM
Just wondering if anyone has modified the Gri Gri 2 for lead and aid solo? How did it go, and was it any good - also - how does it compare to the first Gri Gri for self belay?

EDIT because I forgot how to structure sentences: I've used an un-modded grigri 2 for TR self belay and found it didn't feed as easily as my original, modded, grigri. It still worked just fine but required a little more finesse to keep slack out of the system. The only real issue I had was the gg2 didn't fit my steel d mallion, not a big problem, but I prefer the modified original gg for self belay.

The thing you need to do is ask the right person.
Where is bomber pro when we need him?

Use a thinner rope.

Try an 8 or skinnier. Promise there is no slack at all using that with an unmodded grigri2

Modding a gri gri is for losers.

I modded one, it sucked with my normal 10mm ropes so back to the old one. Which appears to be better for everything that I do (I donīt climb on skinny ropes since Iīm not so skinny myself).

You are the human Gri Gri. Clenching the rope between two rounded lobes to the rear, then tugging on the lever on the front to release the tension.

Eduardo, we must go climbing sometime. Obviously an artiste.

I, too, often climb by the seat of my arse.
