Engineered for hard-to-clean pitches, wild conditions and long days, the Black Diamond Index Ascender is a robust workhorse for jugging in all weather. Pushing the evolution of ascenders, it features a trigger-finger slot to help you manipulate the cam for easier operation low on a pitch or during hard-to-clean traverses. The dual-density grip and trigger increase comfort for big stints on the wall, and a large clip hole allows locking carabiners to rotate 360-degrees to eliminate the possibility of cross loading.
