Used in conjunction with a carabiner, the Ropeman micro-sized ascender performs all sorts of neat tricks on 10 mm line. The Ropeman sideplates swing open for easy midline attachment while the wire is used to disengage the rope-gripping cam when load is relieved.
This thumb-sized ascender is a key element in the popular “Loop Climbing System” which allows near instant adjustment of distance between the waist and friction hitch; far for maximum stride while ascending or close for convenient adjustment while limb walking. Another favorite use is quick and mobile pulley attachment for load hauling or mechanical advantage. 15kN axle strength, 65 grams, not ANSI compliant.
