The Chest Ascender is compact & lightweight and has been designed for use on a full body harness. Therefore it is ideal for use in Rope Access work.
The cam is spring-loaded and fitted with a catch mechanism, allowing for ease one-handed operation of the device whilst attaching to/removing the from the rope.
The Chest Ascender has an increased grip at low load, even on wet/greasy/oily ropes. The cones are angled downwards, giving maximum grip but allowing the cam to slide easily up the rope.
