Review by Troy on Feb. 15, 2008
The croll is the go to ascender for any frog style ascending system. All you need is some webbing and you can make a make shift chest harness real quick.
Because of its position, it can be difficult to learn how to release it from a rope, so practice a couple times on the ground before going up. I've seen some people drill a small hole for accessory cord to be strung through the black plastic part, and that can help with articulating the release a bit.
There really aren't any well used alternatives. If you go for more of a rope walker system, you'll want to use a pully on your chest rig instead.

works great for frog style asending, weight is resonable. Simple no frills use.
also works well for TR soloing, simply girth a sling around top hole and throw that around your neck to keep it in a upright position. I use a steel quicklink to attach it to my harness.
needs a chest harness to slide up rope smoothly. This is hardly a downfall however, simply put a sling around your neck/shoulder and girth to the top hole of ascender.

Really I have no major complaints about the product.
?? perhaps the Petzl Basic...

Awesome chest ascender. Built like a tank, takes a beating. Easy to use.
The nob for opening the cam is a little hard to use with gloves on.
ABC Chest Ascender is better
