The Freino is a little device that helps quite a lot for the issues you describe. You can open the release handle all the way and control the rope friction by changing its angle as it comes out of the little accessory 'biner. Even with it, however, I still only use the grigri for gym, TR, and very occasionally for sport climbing when the situation is appropriate. Also, if cost is a concern, the little bugger will set back a few bux. The Freino:



For the cost of the Freino, I would just buy some sort of normal screwlock and just put it on my leg loop and use it as a redirect. This is what trango recommends; I have done this and it beats buying a $40 biner.

You know, I was of the exact same mindset. That is until I tried a Cinch one day this summer. I was shocked at how well it worked. I posted my Gri Gri for sale on here that night after arriving home and put in my order for a Cinch.
