Best ascender on the market

The Petzl ascender is the caddy of ascenders. I'm an Army guy who came up doing nothing but prusic climbing so when I began buying better civilian equipment I couldn't believe the difference and when I tried the Petzl it was clearly in a class of it's own.

I bought both the left & right, will be using them for a climb on Aconcagua. Also looked at the Black Diamond. These are lighter and easier to use.

So far in my use the Ascension seems to be as solid as I would expect from Petzl. Disengaging the cam is a little more difficult than the BD counterpart but no real issue. Overall I chose this ascender more because of a price point and because the handle was a bit more comfortable for me. I have used it on some 9mm so far with solid hold and no noted damage to the rope sheath. Solid product designed to seemingly have a long life expectancy. Would recommend.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
