trad + grigri 29-Feb-2012 At 2:20:13 PM Sonic
I tend to agree with Kieran and climbau. My ex is 20 or so kgs lighter than me. I have climbed in the bluies and nowra for years and I ALWAYS tell her where to stand but never anchor her down. I, like yourself still clipped the floor occasionally, but only falling near the deck, say, around 2nd bolt. I think you need to assess the belay a little better once it comes to trad. Like said above, I don't know you personally, but in my (seemingly very common) experiences, I think alot of the answer lies there.

On the initial topic I have climbed mid 20s on gear with lighter belayers using a gri gri and never had a problem falling off - but I always made sure they were near to the line of the first piece as possible and I always made sure it was bomber.

I totally agree. They are advertised as an 'assisted braking device' - autolocker is a term made up by someone else. It shits me that people think the device will just do it all for them - but alot of people for some crazy reason these days learn on a gri gri or the like instead of an atc and think that way. I think its crazy.
