Ascension Ascender

#214202 | 30 available

Reg: $79.95

With an ergonomic grip and large opening for gloves, improved cams that are gentler on your ropes, and the ability to work on ropes 8 to 13 mm in diameter, the Petzl Ascension ascender is the gold standard for ascenders.

Molded rubber over the ergonomically-shaped grip improves friction for increased grip and comfort and the trigger is recessed into the frame for better protection in tight places.

    Comments about Petzl Ascension Ascender:

    If your looking for an ascender, your basically looking at this or the BD nForce. I like the nForce, its a quality product, but I found that the ascension is a little more straight forward, and when you are jugging the bottom of a rope and have to feather the cam to open so the rope will slide through, i think the ascension was a little easier to open small amounts quickly. basically I would go with this one, unless you can get the nForce on some sweet sale.

      Comments about Petzl Ascension Ascender:

      Already posted a review for the other ascender. It's a good product and have not yet had any problems. I'd recommend someone considering this product to ask some of the experts that are on the climbing forums first. So far I'm happy with the ascenders
