Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Ascender with a toothy cam that's self cleaning and grips solidly on muddy or icy ropes. Ergonomic design maximizes power when pulling with 2 hands, and it works with thick gloves and mashed up hands.

  • Chrome-plated steel cam with angled teeth is self cleaning, and secure on muddy or icy ropes
  • Moulded rubber and plastic grip with a nylon catch. Ergonomic design keeps your hand from sliding to the bottom
  • Improved cam grips wet or muddy ropes, yet slides up easily
  • Safety catch prevents the cam from opening too far and losing the rope
  • Recessed trigger is guarded from accidental opening on low-angle terrain. Can still be installed or removed with one hand
  • 2 attachment points: wide lower hole accepts carabiners for lanyard and footloop, upper hole clips a carabiner around the rope
  • Not intended shock loading or for self-belay setups
  • Sold individually for left or right hand
