Technical Details

I acquired my Red Rose in 2017 as part of Bob Thrun's collection.

The Red Rose is 103 mm. tall, 60 mm. wide, 37 mm. thick, and weighs 206 g. . The shell is 1.3 mm. stainless steel formed into a U-shaped channel. The rope channel is 18 mm. wide. The cam is hand cut from 15.8 mm. (5/8 in.) aluminum alloy plate. The axle pin is 9.5 mm. stainless steel and is secured by a thin spring wire.

There are no markings on this ascender.

Comments

The shell is fine but the workmanship on the cam is crude. There was no effort to remove excess material from the cam; instead, it was left with a massive, blocky look - but it works well enough.
