So in the rope access industry, we dont really suffer to frequently from iced up ropes or extreme conditions, but in the absence of these, the device works even better! Saying that, dusty, muddy ropes can occur and be problematic.
Either way, this ascender is very nice to use.
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. The ascender’s trigger-finger release allows for hassle-free operation and its molded grip and lightened frame offer quick maneuverability and mobility. With aggressive teeth, the Index is primed for gripping icy ropes, and a large clip-in point and left- and right-handed versions add compatibility.
