Product Description Item No.   10012046

The Tibloc Ascender by Petzl can be used to address a wide range of needs like helping the second climber or hauling someone out of a crevasse or up a wall. This ascender was designed to grip the rope tenaciously under the worst conditions. The self-cleaning cam is designed to provide grip even on mud and ice encrusted ropes with its thin teeth that pass between the fibers of the sheath without damaging the rope. This device has a new refined cam to increase the efficiency in which the ascender glides on the rope. This is the last sentence of the description, I hope you like it just as much as all the other sentences. It took my nine hours to write it.

FEATURES of the Petzl Tibloc Ascender

  • Chrome-plated steel cam with angled teeth and self-cleaning slot securely grips the rope, even in muddy or icy conditions
  • Can be used as a progress capture device in a hauling system
  • Small hole at top of Tibloc allows a keeper cord to be attached

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, strong piece of equipment if used by idiots will dammage ropes The Petzl Tibloc is decently cheep ($30.00) and small/lightweight. It fits ropes 7-13mm, but only comes in one size/color. Generally two Tiblocs are needed, where if you have a Petzl Ascension, only one is needed. In addition only certain types of carabiners work with it and tapes/slings are needed. Also, if you are stupid and use it wrong you can fray your rope and damage the sheath. Plus when using it in a harsh environment such as a wet mucky cave it can run in to a handful of problems. In all it’s a great product I would recommend to a friend...or enemy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have on your trad harness, just in case A great little piece to have. I have never had to use it, thank goodness. This needs to be on you at all times when you lead; keep this, a small knife, some cord, and a quick link on a biner and your prepared for many emergency situations. Note however, that the teeth are nasty on the rope if used wrong. It doesn't weight anything however, so highly recommended. The piece itself is sturdy, well built, and hasn't corroded, it will be on my harness for many years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, specialized piece of equipment. Can be used to protect a leader when simul-climbing, and for emergency situations but it can tear your rope up so I wouldn't recommend it for use as a regular ascender. I have taken a whip on it to test it and it held perfectly with minimal damage to the sheath of the rope i was using. But once that sheath is damaged, the rope becomes much more susceptible to wear and is pretty much useless except as maybe a haul rope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from safety first buy it. keep it on your trad harness with that bit of prusik cord, mini knife, and nut tool. youll forget its there till you really need it. perfect for emergency jugging to rescue your idiot friend who was trying to impress his girlfriend. better safe than sorry, and it weighs nothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two words: Awesome These are amazing if you are too poor to buy real ascenders...virtually any biner will work with them as well as any rope. They're also great for locking yourself in place while doing wall work. I've had mine for about 5 years and sometimes I wear them as jewelry...people think i'm fly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Everyone should have a couple of these in their kit. Great small ascender just in case. I've used these for years on ascending in canyons and so long as you are careful they won't damage your rope...well, no more than your rope hanging over the sharp rock edge of a crack in the earth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and Nifty I love that the Tibloc is barely noticeable when I don't need it but is a wonderful ally when you do. Easy set up on the fly, especially when you're in a jam. Not as great as other ascenders, but for the price and the weight, it's a must for most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth It...Hell, Get 2! These are mainly used as an emergency ascender for my canyoneering adventures. These are tiny and super easy to use. No moving parts equals no maintenance is needed. It is a little harsh on ropes though. I wouldn't use it an a primary ascender.
