GriGri 2, still in pack, this is the replacement that I was sent after the recall and as I didn't like the first one, i've never opened it. $90

Assorted biners (10), $40 the lot

Assorted shoes, 34s and 35s, as new, i just didn't like them, $40 each

Original aliens, ancient and dodgy, for museum collectors only, free to good home or if ambeok wants to start up another hilarious competition, i'll offer them as the prize. GREEN AND YELLOW STILL LOOKING FOR MUSEUM SHELF IF ANYONE LIKES OLD STUFF

Assorted wires (12), biner and nut key, $60 for the lot GONE

Cams: WC flexi friends 00, 1, 1.5, 2,.5 and 2 camalots, 0 metoleus tricam, these all work fine but you might want to replace the slings (the 00 has been done with 7mm cord already) $20 each or $100 the lot GONE

3 camalot, early model, needs trigger replaced, .75 camalot, original generation, has improvised thumb bar replacement, mechanisms work fine, $15 each, $25 for both. GONE

Assorted belay devices, free to good home, John can have them for his program if he wants. GONE

Any offset ones amongst them?
I will pay cash for a blue/black !!

... and will strongly consider buying a non-offset black, and/or blue, item!

There is a black there. It's probably in the best condition of the 3 aliens, mostly due to not being used that much, but it's still ancient and questionable. I'll be at Buffalo either with the VCC or in early Feb and can bring them over.

I could probably do with a no 3 BD if it ends up available . . .

Sure, are you coming through Nati any time soon?

And Macca, I think Spiinal is taking all the cams but I'll let you know if he doesn't want the 3. It does need trigger wires.

Hi Wendy,
Unfortunately I'm too busy moving house and building to get to Nati anytime soon.
I'll pay for postage. Pm your details

Just to be sure, to be sure. We are talking the smallest size alien (which is what I want*), here, aren't we?

(*I only want the smallest size/s for progress pieces on thin aid, so good for bodyweight is fine, even if only two lobes engaged!).

>I'll be at Buffalo either with the VCC or in early Feb and can bring them over.

Happy to link up then and pay you for same.

Not being a grigri owner, and not having done any homework on the topic, what is the difference between a grigri2 and the original grigri?
I am guessing possibly smaller/lighter, maybe takes thinner rope diameters??

How does the ease of use between the two compare?

Yep pretty much...think it is a bit stronger too.

Both shit as a belay device.

You are offering to pay $60 for shit?

Heh, heh, heh.

Hmm.
You are not considering taking up aid climbing, or roped solo with modified grigri, are you?

Another cheap slackline brake M9.



You use the gri gri to capture progress.

So, what is the correlation between grigri capture and juggling numbers/success ratio?

I will stick with hard aid climbing, as I reckon it is easier than that; though I hope for your sake that Wendy is sufficiently impressed to subsidise your endeavours!
