Ascenders Hand - AlGantori/ROPE-CLIMBING Wiki

Notes

  • a rated (life support) adjustable sling or daisy-chain needs to be attached to the bottom of the primary Jumar (hand ascender) for progress capture.

  • a foot loop or foot ladder should be also attached to the bottom of the jumar to make it easier to lift you weight up the rope.

  • For ascending you can one of the following configurations:

    • use 2 Jumars, the primary (upper) jumar is attached with a daisy-chain you can rest your weight (life) on it during progress capture.

      • You will still need a grigri for descent.
    • or 1 Jumar and a grigri (you can still switch feet during the same ascent). The grigri is the one doing the progress capture.
