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.
