    • Fast cam manipulation by using thumb, trigger finger, or the edge of the frame
    • Grip accommodates gloves

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND nForce Ascender, Right:

    This is the best ascender on the market in my opinion. Easy to use. Hand area and trigger are set up to accommodate gloves. You can operate trigger with a finger-hole or a side lever. Water makes no difference in the grab on rope, although I have never used it in ice or snow, just rain. The extra size of hand grip does give it a little more weight than some. I always use a locking biner on the top, but I have never had this thing pop open accidently.

    Climber's finger cuff

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND nForce Ascender, Right:

    Great device, use it setting routes in the gym on over hangs and it works great! If you put your friends finger in the top and release the trigger the harder they pull, it pulls tight.

    Great ascender

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND nForce Ascender, Right:

    Used these for over 80 aid pitches including twice up El Cap. I thought they were great. Smooth up, on, and off. Easy to trigger. I have tried a few other and these have been the best. Highly recommend.

    Bought this for canyoneering in southern Utah. Another piece of essential gear added to the quiver, hope I never have to use it.

    best ascender

    By Eric

    from Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND nForce Ascender, Right:

    I have a right-hand one. This works great on big rappels without a climb out. Also can be used in 3-1 haul system and self-rescue. Have used this on wet ropes in rain (but not ice or snow) still grabs! Easy on and off with one hand, also like how a push up the line takes teeth off automatically. Have not had a problem with it popping off, although I always have a biner through top hole. Best ascender in my opinion on market. Heavier than some but has huge hand area if you are using gloves. You can also operate trigger without sticking your finger through hole if using thicker gloves.
