Just wanted to get a census of peoples views on using a grigri for multi-pitch trad routes over a standard style ATC or bug style belay device.
It is often cited that the main concern with using a grigri for trad is the lack of dynamic belaying which can ultimately shock the runners, whilst on a multi-pitch stance this can be hard to manage with any belay device so just wanted peoples thoughts on this.
Obviously the grigri can only be used on single ropes so i understand this is a factor in many peoples decision.
