    Tibloc Ultralight Emergency Ascender

    The Petzl Tibloc Ultralight Ascender serves so many purposes that it has a place on nearly any long rock climb, aid climb, or alpine climb. Pair this simple 1.4-ounce ascender with an oval-stock carabiner to create a self-locking pulley for bag hauling, crevasse rescue, or aiding a partner up a pitch. It can also be used as an ascender if you need to climb a rope to free a rappel or just can't follow a burly pitch. The Petzl Tibloc Ultralight Ascender also serves a multitude of uses in self-rescue situations.

    • Ultralight ascender for rope ascents and hauling systems
    • Aggressive teeth work on snowy and icy ropes
    • Note: use only on round-stock carabiners
    • Pair with a Petzl Ultralegere Pulley for an ultralight emergency haul kit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I keep this racked on most multis as a “just in case”. I’ve used it on fixed lines, in three-to-one’s, as a progress capture and a few more experimental applications. The one big takeaway, DO NOT let it eat your rope. The tibloc serves two purposes. First, it offers a lightweight option for the competent and attentive climber who might need an ascender, or might not need it. Second, it acts as the perfect rope sheath destruction device if left unattended in the hands of a beginner. Well, maybe not that bad, but it can certainly make some fuzzies. However, so long as it’s used right, the tibloc is a great choice for a backup, emergency or just shaving weight.

    Good PCD

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This device works great as long as you are careful the biner squeezes the tibloc against the rope before its fully weighted. I've seen students damage the rope sheath while ascending.

    A must have!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is such an easy decision. so light weight and small it barely takes up any room and you barely feel it on your harness. Ive had to use a few times and it really helped me get out of some difficult spots. Highly recommend always having at least one of these.
