Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ascender Used these for over 80 aid pitches including twice up El Cap. I thought they were great. Smooth up, on, and off. Easy to trigger. I have tried a few other and these have been the best. Highly recommend. January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential Bought this for canyoneering in southern Utah. Another piece of essential gear added to the quiver, hope I never have to use it. June 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best ascender I have a right-hand one. This works great on big rappels without a climb out. Also can be used in 3-1 haul system and self-rescue. Have used this on wet ropes in rain (but not ice or snow) still grabs! Easy on and off with one hand, also like how a push up the line takes teeth off automatically. Have not had a problem with it popping off, although I always have a biner through top hole. Best ascender in my opinion on market. Heavier than some but has huge hand area if you are using gloves. You can also operate trigger without sticking your finger through hole if using thicker gloves. February 20, 2014
