The 10 Best Ascenders
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in October of 2016. While these ascenders are, of course, perfect for helping mountain and rock climbers scale the highest peaks, they can be just as useful for other professionals working at extreme elevations, such as painters, roofers, arborists and emergency rescue teams. We've rounded up some of the best options out there for each of those purposes, including both foot and hand models. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best ascender on Amazon.
