In self-rescue scenarios, this ultra-light and compact ascender can be used for rope ascents, hauling systems, or friction knot replacement. The carabiner is pressed against the rope by an automatic mechanism, which initiates the braking action on the rope.
In a hauling system, it can be employed as a rope ascender or a progress capturing device.
In any position, the automatic mechanism slams the carabiner against the rope to initiate the braking action on the rope.
The ascender is ultra-light (35 g) and extremely compact, and it can be worn permanently on the harness or carried in a pack.
When placed, the ascender's marking is on the side that is visible.
Even in muddy or icy situations, the stainless steel cam with angled teeth and a self-cleaning slot securely grips the rope.
