A departure from the handled ascenders, Petzl’s BASIC ascender offers different configuration for personal ascent, work positioning and progress capture. The high-grade aluminum frame lends to a lightweight feel, while the self cleaning, stainless steel, toothed cam offers superior grip and durability. A lower attachment point is wide, and makes connecting lanyards, pulleys or foot-loops quick and easy, while the upper attachment point can be utilized to capture the rope into the rope channel via carabiner.
