The Petzl Ascension is an ergonomically shaped ascender. The handle is molded with dual density grip for greater friction and better grip. The cam has been redesigned to minimize friction when sliding the ascender up the rope, while the angled teeth provide a secure grip in the worst conditions (wet, icy, or muddy ropes). The geometry of a single piece aluminum frame ensures optimal handle orientation when the device is loaded, and will maintain a solid and comfortable performance with ascents of any length.
