Ascenders


Camp Turbohand Pro Left 
£72.00

Camp Turbohand Pro Left

Very efficient medium sized hand ascender for the left hand. Larger than a Kong Futura but smaller than a Petzl Ascension, the Turbohand weighs just under 200g and is strikingly different in shape and features. It has a small roller at the base of the rope-contact surface to reduce friction when pushing the ascender up the rope, and a stainless steel rope guide at the base of the handle, which helps alignment on the rope and keeps teh attachment karabiner away from the rope. Lots to look at here! We've been using one on a couple of trips earlier in the year, but current events have put a stop to that. Initial impression is positive. Conforms with EN 567 for ropes 8mm to 13mm diameter. Made in Italy

Kong Futura hand LEFT 
£51.00

Kong Futura hand LEFT

A very lightweight and compact handled jammer from this innovative Italian company. The Futura works on ropes from 8mm - 12mm, and runs very smoothly. The rope contact surface is very large, running the full length of the 'handle' (14cm) This model is designed for left handed use. The hand positioning is unusual, in that it simulates holding the rope, but *underneath* the point of connection, rather than above it; it is quite dissimilar to both standard handled, and non-handled jammers. Once accustomed to it, the Futura is very efficient and user friendly. It has been noted by users that it is more forgiving of being pushed up against knots than most ascenders - but it it still best to avoid this! Length: 140mm. Weight only 125g
