Ascenders, Pulleys & Rotors

Ascending: For regular use, handled ascenders are best, but for occasional use and self-rescue from crevasses etc, micro ascenders are cheap and much lighter. The cheapest and lightest ascender on the market is a Prusik Loop. For climbing a free-hanging fixed rope, ascenders need to be used in pairs (though not matching pairs) and at a minimum, two screwgate karabiners and a long sling are also required. Anyone climbing multi-pitched routes anywhere should carry two Prusik loops, a long sling and some screwgates at all times (and know how to use them), as there is always a risk of falling into a position where you are dangling free of the rock, and your partner cannot haul you, nor is the rope long enough to lower you.

Autobloc: A Prusik Loop or a Shunt can be used as an autobloc when abseiling or hauling/lowering loads.

Self Belaying: Some ascenders can also be used to protect a solo climber who is climbing along side a fixed rope. Unfortunately there is no simple answer as to what is the best device for self-toproping, and, as the devices available are constantly evolving, it is probably best to contact us or any other good climbing shop for the most up to date information. 

Please note that prices are for a single unit.
