A favorite for guides, the GiGi has an almost infinite number of applications. It can be used as both a belay device and emergency ascender. Excellent for crevasse rescue, for lowering heavy loads, or belaying two people at one time. The GiGi is the perfect choice for climbers or alpinists searching for rope management solutions. If you are planning on adding one piece of gear to your rack this year, the GiGi is your ticket.
