The aluminum-bodied Basic Ascender is designed for use with haul systems on alpine ascents, for crevasse rescue or as a top rope self-belay device. The smooth-running toothless cam design won't slip on icy or muddy ropes, making it ideal for harsh alpine climates. The Basic Ascender's dimensions are 3 x 2 x .75in, and has a rope holding strength of +4kN/900lb. *Not for use as a lead belay device.

Very good a top rope self-belay device

I was trying to find the best “self belaying” device for top rope climbing. Of course I am not sure if USHBA is the best (never used different one), but this piece is working like a “Swiss watch”. You just click it to the rope and start climbing the crag. When you fall, you'll stay almost on the same spot. Addition to that USHBA is so smooth that while climbing, one can’t even feel any rope drag. That said USHBA is definitely good “self belaying” device and I am satisfied on 100%.

Light and Small

I really like the Cinch, it is easy to use it has a very compact and light frame.
