The Ascension ergonomic handled rope clamp for rope ascents from Petzl

Petzl handled ascenders have been refined to provide greater comfort, efficiency, ease of use. The ergonomically shaped handle on the Ascension is molded with dual density overmolded grip for greater friction and better grip.

The grip is wider at the bottom, providing better comfort for your pinkie fingers during use. The index finger indent has also been increased, offering greater efficiency when pulling on the ascender or handled rope clamp. The cam has been redesigned to minimize friction when sliding the ascender up the rope while the angled teeth provide secure grip in the worst conditions (wet, icy, or muddy ropes).

The geometry of the Ascensions single piece aluminum frame ensures optimal handle orientation when the device is loaded and will maintain solid, comfortable performance for ascents of any length.

PetzlThe overmolded dual-density grip has an area for the index finger and a wide, supportive base to keep the hand from slipping. This shape ensures a comfortable and powerful grip, increasing efficiency when ascending a rope.
PetzlErgonomic upper part to maximize power when pulling with two hand
PetzlThe safety catch allows the handled rope clamp to be installed or removed anywhere on the rope with one hand. It is easily manipulated, even with gloves
PetzlWide lower hole allows the carabiners of the PROGRESS lanyard and FOOTAPE or FOOTCORD footloop to be easily attached
  • Simple to use, and effective
  • Molded grip provides a comfortable yet powerful grip with a more ergonomically shaped handle. This shape keeps your hand from sliding to the bottom of the frame each time you pull on the Ascension. The bi-material handle includes a rubber over molded grip, increasing the comfort and grip in wet or icy conditions.
  • New Ergo grip with larger surface area at bottom of handle
  • Ergonomic trigger allows one-handed installation and removal
  • Wide opening allows the handle to be easily grasped, even with thick gloves
  • Mono-frame construction eliminates weaknesses and keeps the ascender lightweight and durable for years of use
  • Anodized frames are color coded for easy identification (black -left / gray -right)
  • The two attachment points allow for different uses (e.g. self- belaying, hauling systems, etc.)
  • Upper hole for clipping a carabiner around the rope
  • Safety catch prevents the cam from opening too far, helping to keep the rope captured for added safety
  • Safety catch is totally integrated into the body of the rope clamp to help prevent snagging
  • New toothed cam is less abrasive to ropes
  • Chrome-plated steel cam with angled teeth and self-cleaning slot securely grips the rope and optimizes performance under any conditions (frozen, muddy, or dirty ropes...)
