Neil, if you put a second crab on the jumar and run the tail from the GriGri through it then you get a pulley to help get the rope through the GriGri as you stand up. This does increase the risk of the GriGri not locking, but I've never had an issue and it's easy enough to tie a backup knot from time to time.

You have to lift the hanging rope as you slide the jumar up though, so it will be tiring on a really long rope. I haven't actually tried it on more than about 20m, but I've had a full 60m rope hanging below me a couple of times and been OK.

Note that Tiblocs are only $40 if you want a lightweight ascender as well.
