In the fall of 2020, BRT founder Alex Ribelin was tired of lugging ladder sticks and a platform, along with his regular gear for "lightweight" mountain hunts using his saddle. When it was all said and done, the very concept of easy in, easy up was long gone. There had to be a better way. After lots of trial and error, he designed and developed a truly lightweight, all in one climber exclusively for the saddle hunting community. Weighing in under 4 pounds, the Ascent-02 is a true game changer! Fitting easily in most backpacks, The Ascent-02 allows you to get to those remote places, without breaking a sweat!
