Buy Petzl Ascentree Handled Ascender


Petzl's Ascentree gives you a two-fisted grip on your line. Ascentree will accept 1 or 2 legs of rope up to 13 mm (1/2"). Holes in the frame above each cam will accept carabiners for backup prusiks or carabiners to trap the rope. New version in 2015 is both lighter and more ergonomic!

The overmolded dual-density grips have an area for the index finger and a wide, supportive base to keep the hand from slipping. This shape ensures a comfortable and powerful grip, significantly increasing efficiency when ascending a rope.

The safety catch allows the handled rope clamp to be installed or removed anywhere on the rope with one hand. It is easily manipulated, even with gloves.
