    When it comes to ascending fixed lines, nothing rivals the Petzl Croll Chest Ascender for speed and efficiency. When used in conjunction with a chest strap (Petzl Torse) and a basic handled ascender, the Croll simply slides up the rope as you make upward progress. The self-cleaning slot allows the stainless steel cam to perform on frozen or dirty ropes, and the compact nylon trigger allows for quick manipulation of the device.

    • Toothed cam utilizes a self-cleaning slot so it will perform on dirty or frozen ropes
    • Stainless steel cam and wear plate provide durable corrosion resistance
    • Simply pinch the nylon trigger to open the catch and manipulate the ascender
    • Bottom hole is angled to keep the ascender parallel with the rope
    • Top hole is designed to attach a chest harness or Torse strap (harness/strap sold separately) to keep the ascender in the proper position
    • Designed for use with single ropes between 8 and 11mm
    • Item #PTZ0354

    Best Chest Ascender Out There

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is an ultra lightweight and durable piece of equipment that's integral to my vertical rig (I climb on a frog system). Despite scraping it on rocks and dragging it through mud while crawling/climbing/etc from one pit to another, it's held up wonderfully and works as well as it did when I first bought it. If you're putting together a vertical system, I recommend buying a Petzl kroll instead of a knock-off brand. I've heard some stories about excessively-used krolls developing a sharp edge after years of use and severing rope sheaths so, as always, check your vertical gear before you starting climbing rope to avoid an accident.
