Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish it came in a two pack, but no complaints Works great, super easy to use, grabbed rope very well, much nicer fit and finish than some other brands I use for work. -Unexpected use, had an elk quartered on a really steep grade, was able to clip onto the bags and hand haul up a taut line. (Takes two people, but beat the crap out of climbing up with 100lbs on your back several times) And clipped in to get the hunters out. Absolutely will not go hunting in steep country without this and my ropes in my truck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This ascender does exactly what it is meant for. I have used it for top-rope soloing and it has helped get me out of moves beyond my limit. A great addition to my rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves Accessibility for Injured Climbers Having shattered my clavicle a few months ago mountain biking, I am just now being cleared by the doctors to start safe physical activity. While I am definitely pushing the limits of what they are wanting me to do, I am finally getting back to climbing by using the Ascender Index. I am able to pull myself up the wall using only one arm and trust that my gear has me covered and will keep me safe. I have been putting this gear to the test the last few weeks and it is performing perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for jugging lines. But mainly I use it for belaying on steep sport routes when my partner has to boink.

Can the ascender be "clipped" on the rope or does rope need to be fed through?

Asked by: Rick217
Hey there, thanks for your question. If Im understanding what you are asking then yes this can be 'clipped' onto the rope and you do not need a loose end of the rope to feed through the ascender. I hope this helps!
