Peak Ascent 42

Whether you’re traversing high snowy ridges, or topping out single pitch crags in the valley, the Peak Ascent 42 is equipped for both snow and rock. A great entry level alpine and winter mountaineering pack, the Peak Ascent 42 is ideal for summer and winter outings.

Clean, simple and very functional, the Peak Ascent 42 is packed with features including the unique double HeadLocker ice axe attachment system, gear loops and ice screw krab slots on the hip belt, and under lid rope and crampon strap. Lash points allow additional external carry when required, and the lid is removable to streamline the pack even more.

Made with tough yet lightweight mini hexa fabric, the Peak Ascent 42 features a comfortable, supportive snow shedding back system. With side compression straps for stability, a large grab handle for clipping to belays, and mitt-friendly winter buckles, the Peak Ascent 42 is the result of over fifty years expertise designing the best alpine carry systems in the world.

Carry System

The Ascent range features a moulded panel designed to stay comfortable and supportive whatever terrain you encounter on the way to the summit. Snow shedding, and with grip panels for load stability, a lightweight hip belt and sculpted shoulder straps give a super comfortable and secure carry when scrambling or moving over rough terrain. Women’s ND Ascent packs include a women's geometry back system for improved carrying comfort.
