Petzl Ascension

5 reviews   |  

The Petzl Ascension is the most simple and commonly used handled ascender, and is highly effective for getting up static lines.

Available in both left and right handed versions, the Petzl Ascension features an efficient and comfortable handle that allows you to have a powerful grip, even when wearing gloves and when pulling with either one or two hands. It also features a wide lower hole for easily attaching two carabiners for use with a lanyard and foot loop.

The Ascension will grip ropes in all conditions, even on ice and mud encrusted ropes with the help of a self-cleaning cam. The teeth are thin so that they pass between the fibres of the rope sheath without causing damage and these spikes are angled downwards so that when ascending, there is minimal wear on the rope and a smoother action is applied.


  • Ergonomic moulded handle allows a comfortable yet powerful grip
  • Wide opening allows the handle to be easily grasped, even with thick gloves.
  • Ergonomic upper part to maximise power when pulling with two hands
  • Safety catch is totally integrated into the body of the ascender to help prevent snagging
  • Toothed cam with self-cleaning slot optimises performance under any conditions (frozen or dirty ropes)
  • Wide lower hole allows the carabiners of the CONNECT ADJUST lanyard and FOOTAPE or FOOTCORD footloop to be easily attached
  • Upper hole for clipping a carabiner around the rope

Original Jumars a bit old so replaced with this.

Un-used as yet. Many possibilities with Petzl kit.

going up!

perfect, really comfortable, first time jugging up a rope and found it very useful, may consider the right hand version as using this with the grigri was tiring, feeling with the right hand ascender it will be easier and more comfortable.

Worth taking the risk

I was wondering about how secure would be the purchase from UK to Canada and it was really great. The shiping time and reaction was overall much better than with any canadian or us online shop. Thank you
