    Comments about PETZL Ascender, Left Handed:

    These are a must for any climber that loves to go vertical. I use the ascenders in the gym, on rappels and just finished climbing a 170 foot waterfall with them. The Petzl ascenders make any climb enjoyable. Throw in a small pulley, a grigri, and some oval carabiners to finish the system and you literally can go anywhere up and down. The grips are comfortable even for long climbs (with or without gloves), lightweight so they are perfect to add to your pack, and a perfectly designed thumb release for ease of use. I found attaching a cord with a foot loop in it, then linking it to your leading ascender is great for when you want to hold in place for that great photo. Just lock your leg out like your sitting and rest the other one on top. It's like an easy chair in the air.
