Petzl Basic


The Petzl Basic ascender is a compact multi-purpose, lightweight ascender that offers excellent grip for a variety of rope ascents.

Working on single ropes from 8-11mm, the Basic is often carried by climbers and mountaineers for emergency use. Small and light, it's a great choice for rescue and hauling situations where a full handled ascender would be overkill. 


  • Compact ascender with excellent grip
  • Can be used for rope ascent on a fixed line or as progress capture in a hauling system
  • Toothed cam with self-cleaning slot optimizes performance under any conditions (e.g. frozen or dirty ropes)
  • Stainless steel cam has better resistance to corrosion
  • Lower attachment hole large enough for two carabiners (lanyard and foot loop)
  • Upper connection hole for guiding the rope
  • CE and UIAA certified


  • Handled: No
  • Manufacturer: Petzl
  • Weight: 90g
