Petzl Basic

The Petzl Basic is a multi-purpose compact ascender that offers excellent grip for rope ascents. The lower attachment hole is large enough to hold the carabiners for the lanyard and the footloop. The 2013 model is noticeably smaller, and therefore lighter, which makes the improved Basic a better choice for rescue and hauling situations, where a full handled ascender would be overkill.
