Product Features

The Petzl Basic Ascender is an ergonomic and compact rope ascender which excels in a wide variety of situations. The Petzl Basic navigates hauling system, rope climbing and self belaying on a fixed rope. The wide lower attachment point is roomy enough for two locking carabiners to support both lanyard and footloop. The Basic is now 30% lighter than the previous model, which means when we say it's compact and adds little weight to your glacier travel kit, we mean it!
