What is an Ascender in Fortnite?

An Ascender is basically a vertical zipline that helps you climb up (or down) the side of a mountain or one of the Imagined Order Blimps that are located above POIs like The Daily Bugle or Tilted Towers.

To use them, simply approach the Ascender wire and press the interact button to zip up or down.
