  • Available prices $89.00


Show Description

Lighter than the previous Basic Ascender design, and much more compact than ascenders with handles (though not as ergonomic over a long haul). It's an excellent tool for occasional use or for setting up a quick haul system.

  • Aluminum frame, steel cam, and nylon trigger.
  • Toothed cam is self cleaning and secure on muddy or icy ropes. Resists corrosion.
  • Upper connection hole guides the rope through the device and prevents twisting.
  • Lower attachment hole is large enough for 2 biners.
  • Accepts ropes 8-11mm.
  • The device is not designed for self belaying or situations where it can be shock loaded.
