This neat little ascender system can be added onto any rope climbing system using 7/16” (11mm) rope.. This kit was thought up by veteran climber Gerry Beranek. In the doubled rope technique, this system puts a footstrap on the Basic, which is in turn connected to the rope by a prusik on a custom bungee lanyard. This bungee advances the ascender as soon as you step up with your leg that is in the footstrap.
