Show Description

Save effort on big walls and glaciers with this lightweight, durable ascender. An innovative index finger trigger releases the cam, so you can slide it up without having to haul rope out the bottom using your other hand – even at the beginning of ascents, when there’s not much rope weight below the unit.

  • Aluminum body with stainless steel cams.
  • Dual density grip and trigger is comfortable for banged up fingers.
  • Available right hand and left hand versions.
