The 10 Best Ascenders
We spent 20 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. 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 picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best ascender on Amazon.
