Ive been trying to figure out what this is, and have had no luck. Anyone?

PS, I don't have it in hand, only saw this picture of it and was curious...

looks like some kind of fall arrest device for rope access or other professional use.

It's a basic toothless ascender. Ushba made a titanium one, and I think camp makes a similar model.

Its the "uascend" by GrandWall Equipment, a small gear company out of Squamish, BC

Here's the ascender on their site
