/ What is the benefit of a Stop over a Grigri?
Easier to put on the rope? Seem to be better suited to caving.
I would suggest it's quicker to put a grigri on a rope than a stop.
Stop handles muddy/wet/frozen ropes better, I think.
You can disable the stops autolocking, which can be important at times.
stop has replaceable parts, is rated for 2 person rescues and leaves loads less pig tails in the rope.k
