Flipping the brake side of the rope across your hip, and holding it beside or almost behind you was the way I was taught to descend someone with a Grigri. The device does provide friction, but you should NEVER become dependant on it. I've never thought it was that difficult, and I don't know why you would have to let go of the brake side of the rope!

That's the way that makes the most sense to me and the way I see everyone in videos do it. At this gym, they teach you to flip the brake side behind your back so it wraps around your body half way so it's tight across your back and provides friction that way. The real problem is fucking around with all of the slack to get it behind you in the first place. Then you have to reconfigure your legs around all of the slack laying on the floor.
