All I can do is try-sometimes I get lucky.

You must not have been screaming enough 'beezaattts'. Try grunting more because if I learned anything from MP in the last month its the following math:

Grunting + no shirt + gnar project + campusing - footwork = getting all the girls.

If I put a screamer on the anchor, can I still hip belay or do I have to use a GriGri?

also... I had the same pair of shoes resoled twice. Are they still the same size?

It's a GriGri 1. Is that why I have trouble with double ropes?

C4, then XS on top. They're super thick now.

+1. only if you are rope-soloing. i just don't know what is the best biner to use with my grigri2. The last one i bootied from a redhead bolt next to the bastille crack.

You should definitely use two steel carabiners when belaying with a gri gri. You never know, sometimes climbing related forces can reach over 100kN so it's good to be safe.

Of course, it's a different matter if you're practicing falling on gear (which I'd highly recommend).
