Petzl's Ascension handled ascenders provide comfort, efficiency, and ease of use while on-rope. The handles on these ascenders are molded of dual density rubber for greater friction and a better grip. The ergonomic grip is wider at the bottom, providing better comfort for your pinkie fingers during use. The cam is designed to minimize friction when sliding the ascender up the rope, and the angled teeth provide a secure grip in wet, icy or muddy conditions. These ascenders provide comfortable performance for all ascents from TAG Pits to El Cap.


  • Molded grip provides even greater comfort with a more ergonomically shaped handle. This shape keeps your hand from sliding to the bottom of the frame each time you pull on the ASCENSION. The bi-material handle includes a rubber over molded grip, increasing the comfort and grip in wet or icy conditions

  • Chrome-plated steel cam with angled teeth and self-cleaning slot securely grips the rope, even in muddy or icy conditions

  • Ergonomic trigger allows one-handed installation and removal

  • Mono-frame construction eliminates weaknesses and keeps the ascender lightweight and durable for years of use

  • The two attachment points allow for different uses (e.g. self- belaying, hauling systems, etc.)

  • Anodized frames are color coded for easy identification (black -left / gray -right)

  • Safety catch prevents the cam from opening too far, helping to keep the rope captured for added safety

  • 1 cm secondary hole at the bottom will accommodate a screw link for attaching aiders, slings, etc

  • For use with single ropes between 8 and 13 mm

  • Certification(s) : CE EN 567, UIAA

  • Sold as a Single Ascender - Choose either Left (Black Frame) or Right (Gray Frame)
