From frozen front-pointing to flowing multi-pitch on rock, the Alpine Ascent 32 is the perfect top loading climbing pack. Clean and lightweight, the Alpine Ascent 32 is the ideal companion on high alpine peaks, winter climbs and summer rock climbs.
The Alpine Ascent 32 is packed with features for alpinists and mountaineers, from the double HeadLocker ice tool attachment, large grab handle for clipping to belays, to the top tensioner rope holder. A comfortable, supportive snow shedding back system includes grip panels for load stability, along with side compression straps.
The Alpine Ascent 32 includes gear loops and ice screw krab slots on the hip belt, which is stowable for use with a harness. The frame is also removable, while TriShield Dura fabric panelling reinforces critical areas. The result of over 50 years design experience, the Alpine Ascent 32 delivers the perfect balance of weight, stability and reliability when moving in the mountains.

One key to feeling your best on the climb is packing as light as possible for the approach, and sometimes the approach is long and the climb consists of double trad racks. Lowe Alpine made the Alpine Ascent 32L Backpack big enough for the double rack, essential climbing equipment, lunch, a hydration reservoir, and even a layer or two. It also has a rope holster at the top and external attachments for ice axes and screws so you can carry bulkier gear outside the pack to save more space inside. The waist belt stows away so you can wear a climbing harness with ease, and there are two more gear loops to add to your climbing rig.
