Shunt : Rappel back-up ascender from Petzl
In the event of an unwanted slide of the rope, the ascender instantly deploys a locking mechanism that blocks the rope. It is therefore an essential and vital device for climbing. Whether you're looking for a one or two ropes ascender, Snowleader has a range of different devices to meet your needs.
On Snowleader, you will find different types of ascenders. Whether you are looking for a chest ascender (used in conjunction with hand ascenders for rope climbing), or a backup ascender, placed under the descender (used to back-up an abseiling descent and replace autoblocking knots), you'll find what you are looking for.
Snowleader also offers you small emergency ascenders that, in difficult situations, can help you hauling or replace an autoblock knot in case of self-rescue.
