There's a reason that the Petzl Ascension Handled Ascender is the most popular ascender for big wall climbers. Its simple, functional, ergonomic design makes it the choice for any aid line out there. The thumb catch makes it easy to partially release the cam and ease your progress low on the pitch where rope weight isn't helping you yet. Wet, muddy, or icy ropes? Not a problem for this ascender's super-aggressive teeth. Petzl also added a top carabiner loop as an additional security measure for when you're cleaning the Great Roof.

  • Ergonomic-molded handle
  • Integrated safety catch
  • Toothed cam with self-cleaning slot
  • Wide carabiner hole

Caving and rescue essential

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

If you are planning on ascending this is what you need. Too bulky as a backup though, recommend the tibloc for that.
