Since moving to Bristol I have noticed that it is the 'norm' to use GRI-GRIs with novices in walls and at the crag. This is not 'best practice' and is rarely done at the main climbing centres (i.e. Peak District, North Wales, Lakes). Whilst it is always fun to debate whether this is a good thing (it is not) I am more interested in people's experience depending on their location. Do you live in the areas mentioned above and use Gri-Gris with novices (am I wrong) or is there a trend across the country that maybe started in the South West (or, I suspect the South East) that has yet to take off up north.
