Petzl Ascension Handled Ascender (RH model)
Review by: donniecs, 2010-11-22
I've been using this ascender as part of a frog climbing system for about a year now for caving. Caving isn't exactly the cleanest environment to operate but even with the ascender and rope caked in mud, operation was flawless. Some people have said that the "new style" ascenders will wear the rope more than a Gibbs style ascender but our ropes see heavy uses and no abnormal wear. The only thing I would change is a larger eyelet at the bottom to accommodate two carabiners during a change-over.
Does what its designed to do.

Havent had any problems on my 10.5 mm rope. Locks off solid and does not slip.

I use this in combination with a gri-gri to ascend and take photos. It's pretty slick.
