There are nearly 50 different belay devices on the market, and fewer than five qualify as “auto-locking.”  It says quite a bit about a Petzl Grigi that today, 18 years after its introduction to the market, it is still the gold standard for auto-locking devices. The combination of its ease of use, and effectiveness for catching falls and holding hangdogging partners, makes the Grigri the preferred device for single-pitch cragging.
