Battle for the Best Big Wall Ascender
Battle for the Best Big Wall Ascender
We compare the two top ascenders, the Black Diamond nForce and the Petzl Ascension. Both work well and each one excelled at different things. Both made ascending ropes not just tolerable, but kinda fun....

We believe the best gear reviews are those that objectively compare and contrast. To that end, we partner with our sister site for gear review information. OutdoorGearLab was launched in July 2011 as a spin-off of SuperTopo's gear review section, which originally was exclusively focused on climbing gear, and expanded over time to include general outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and more.
