Lighter and compact hand ascender.
Long and narrow cam for tenacious grip on ropes from 8mm - 11mm. Stainless steel cam for corrosion resistance with alloy body.
This Basic ascender is quite different from the preceding version in the way it sits in the hand. The larger clip in hole is useful for cavers using the continental method of keeping footloop / hand-jammer as a distinct and separate unit, into which the the safety cord is clipped.
Makes a pulley-jammer in conjunction with the Petzl Partner or similar.
Weight 90g, alloy frame, stainless steel cam.
