Product Description

The benchmark for handled ascenders has been refined to provide greater comfort; efficiency, ease of use. The ergonomically shaped grip is over molded with rubber for greater friction and the broader surface provides greater comfort while pulling on the ascender. The grip is wider at the bottom providing better comfort for your hand during use. The index finger indent has also been increased offering greater efficiency when pulling on the ascender. The trigger to open/close the cam is now recessed inside the frame to avoid accidentally opening the cam while in use. The cam has been redesigned to minimize friction when sliding the ascender along the rope while the angled teeth provide secure grip in the worst conditions (wet, icy, or on muddy ropes). The geometry of the single piece aluminum frame ensures optimal handle orientation when the device is loaded and will maintain solid, comfortable performance even after thousands of meters of jugging.

A pair of these ascenders work extremely well and are relatively affordable. Have also used these to grab onto ropes being used for rigging and to then transfer that load around. Well built, quality pieces of equipment.

Currently using this product as part of a tree-climbing rig. Absolutely love it! Paired with the Petzl Grigri 2, you have a bomb-proof system (provided you have the adequate training and skills to pull it off). I also plan to to use this ascender for more traditional rope work in the Spring. In addition, I like this so much that I will likely buy two more (another right hand and a left hand version). The price can't be beat and the reputation of Petzl speaks for itself. Highly Recommended!

This is a great device. I prefer left even though I am right handed, as I do everything else on the rope with my right hand.

Just what we needed. Lucky to find one for a lefty. It will take some practice to make it work smoothly.

I'm only a novice, but I've found this ascender works as advertised. I would recommend this brand as I also have a croll chest ascender by Petzl which works well, too.

Got a pair of these for tree work and they work great. Keep them handy on my harness rings and use them a lot moving around while topping. Very nice quality and use them for sport rappelling also. Very pleased!

Simply Effective! Excellent performance. Good fit and function. Easy to use. I even use it for steep roofing projects (12/12 pitch or more - 45 degrees). Lightweight and unobtrusive. Hold is confident and firm. No question of safety.

This ascender is great for grabbing on to rope or for short ascensions. Solid build and easy to use. I wish the handle was a little thicker and the grip wrapped all the way around. Otherwise great product and reasonably priced!
