Which is NOT sitting on a tightly cammed gri-gri!
if you really wanted to be "safe" according to petzl
This does not help your argument at all.
of course if the new RC stance is that the gri gri is now suddenly a hands free device ... now thats something ...
You are confusing belaying hands free with having a loaded locked off gri-gri hands free. They are NOT the same!
A loaded grigri is 100% safe to go hands free provided the cam isn't forced open.
Forcing a cam open takes a fair bit of force that is very unlikely to occur when loaded. Like many such situations if you want to make it super safe tying off helps.
