The Petzl Basic is a light and compact ascender that has been ergonomically designed for rope ascents. The Petzl Basic fits well in your hand and is designed with two holes; the lower which is big enough for two carabiners, and the upper to guide the rope.The Petzl Basic can be used whatever the conditions of the weather given it’s stainless steel cam, which means it is not only anti-corrosive in bad conditions, but the toothed design has a self cleaning slot for dealing with dirty ropes. The Basic is not a one show pony, since it can be used for rope ascent on a fixed line as well as being used as progress capture in a hauling system.
