Product Description

The Black-Diamond-nForce-Ascender uses a unique four-bar pivot system that places your entire body weight on the cam for excellent grip, even on muddy and icy ropes. The result is 33% better grip than a standard ascender. This same system also reduces cam pressure when you slide the ascender up the rope, which makes the nForce Ascender efficient for jugging long pitches. Because it fits ropes from 8 to 13mm in diameter, this Black Diamond ascender provides a solid choice for everything from big wall climbing to expedition routes on big mountains.


Body Material: Aluminum Cam Material: Aluminum Fits Rope Sizes: 8-13mm Recommended Use: Big wall climbing, aid climbing, expedition climbing Weight: 8.6oz (245g) Warranty: 1 Year Country of Origin: United States
