Wild Country Ropeman 1 and 2 are the definitive climbing rope ascenders – and provide an unrivalled range for all rock climbing, alpine climbing, winter climbing, sports climbing and mountaineering.
Ropeman 1 New Ropeman 1 - Smoother in the hand, the revamped Ropeman 1 now comes with hot forged sideplates that help to optimize the fit and function across a broader range of karabiners.
This original but revamped Ropeman is the lightest of the three, has an aluminium cam and is designed for ropes over 10mm in diameter.
New Ropeman 2 - Now reworked with forged sideplates the Ropeman 2 is neater in the hand, a touch lighter and with better internal radii it has a smoother function across a broader range of karabiners. The Ropeman Mk2 was the successor to the Mk1 and was designed with stainless steel cam that allows use on ropes down to 8mm. The stainless cam allows a more complex (and more aggressive looking) but ultimately more rope friendly design, which gives bite on thinner cords that the Ropeman 1 doesn't have.
