  1. Great Handled Ascender

    Posted by Derek Bristol on 19th Nov 2018

    The latest iteration of the Petzl Ascension works as well as ever and 15% lighter than the previous generation.

  2. Good aggressive ascender

    Posted by Paul Winter on 14th Apr 2015

    These Petzl ascenders have a more aggressive tooth pattern than many other brands. The different sized holes for attachment are not quite ideal for certain set ups, but if you’re climbing muddy rope, this is a faithful ascender. I’ve used them reliably on rope from 8-12.5mm.
