C.T. Quick Step RIGHT c/w Catch
Save: 25% off
Medium sized ascender for the right foot. All foot ascenders help maintain a more upright posture on the rope (especially useful for the more top-heavy caver) and also assist in some manoeuvers such as knot passing, or tackling more technical (or badly rigged!) rebelays.
The Climbing Technology Quick Step has an adjustable nylon foot harness with underfoot reinforcement.
This right foot version has a catch, which prevents the ascender from disengaging from the rope while ascending. Although less useful for tight pitch heads - where the ability to take the device off the rope without being able to reach your foot can be crucial - it is very suited for long pitches or those cavers committed to rope walking. In this case, the rope coming out of the ascender - which is more likely on longer pitches where the weight of the rope below the caver makes a difference - can easily break the rhythm of ascent; the catch on the ascender here, prevents this.
