Not a direct reply to Social-climber, just the information in his post.

Sorry about the dog but . . .
Seriously! When will people learn that a "break assist device" ie Grigri is no substitute for proper belay skills? I'm not going to be naive and say this wouldn't have happened with an ATC or similar, because this group of climbers clearly does not have the collective intelligence to properly use their equipment.

Some people "crusade against the cult of the tricam", but I think I'm going to start the crusade against Gumbies with Grigris. Nice, it even rhymes.

***disclaimer***
The Grigri is a wonderful device in the hands of a well trained belayer.
