Mandatory race gear for both the Wasatch Powder Keg and Crested Butte National Championships. This is a critical piece of Ski Mountaineering Racing gear you'll be happy you have for those races. The sophisticated handled ascender is designed for efficient movement along fixed lines. The cast steel cam has 17 teeth for a solid grip on the rope. The aluminum alloy frame is light yet durable and has a long rope channel for better performance on traverses. The ergonomic thermo-molded handle provides good insulation and aids grip when wet. The handle extends down around the bottom hole to provide a wide radius that reduces wear on webbing; a Quick Link or locking carabiner may also be used to attach slings. The low-profile thumb release requires two actions to lock open and one to automatically lock shut and it can be operated with either hand.
