Petzl Ascension


The Petzl Ascension handled ascender

It's no longer just hardened rope access and technical rescuers that use the ASCENSION.
It's versatility has seen it become a tool used across a whole range of industries.
With this expansion comes new applications and the requirement for easy integration into existing systems.

To address this for 2015 the ASCENSION has two changes:

Following the success of the revised BASIC ascender, the upper frame of the Ascension is restyled to give a more ergonomic shape for a comfortable and powerful grip when pulling with one or two hands. Perfect for longer climbs or when space is tight and you need to keep close to the rope. The second change is to the attachment hole at the bottom of the frame. To get away from the 'connector chain' that occurs when two items, say a foot loop and connection lanyard need to be attached, the new ASCENSION has a wider lower attachment hole. This smooth, elongated 'D' shape allows two standard connectors to sit neatly side by side.

The overmolded dual-density grip has an area for the index finger and a wide, supportive base to keep the hand from slipping.
This shape ensures a comfortable and powerful grip, increasing efficiency when ascending a rope.

Ergonomic upper part maximizes power when pulling with two hands

The safety catch allows the handled rope clamp to be installed or removed anywhere on the rope with one hand.
It is easily manipulated, even with gloves

Wide lower hole allows the karabines of the lanyards and footloops to be easily attached.
