Topic - GriGri or ClickUp?

Chambers - on 11 Apr 2013
Hi Guys.

For reasons that I don't entirely comprehend, I'm about to start doing a lot of sport climbing. It's partly due to having relocated to the North Welsh coast where my local crag is a bolted sport venue. It's also to do with the fact I want to give my son a safe introduction to climbing, but mostly - I think - it's because nearly forty years of trad have made me unhinged enough to think that the distinction between trad and sport is no longer the burning issue that it once was!

So, to the point: I'm a little out of touch with developments in belaying devices for sport climbing. Having been on the scene at the advent of Sticht plates and used a number of variations on that theme over the years, I've never used anything else or felt the need for anything else. Now, however, with my climbing partner being relatively inexperienced as well as considerably lighter than me, I'm thinking that a GriGri or something similar is the way forward.

Any advice/opinions would be gratefully received.
