1957 Pitons. Holds?
« on: November 25, 2008, 02:25:29 PM »
Here's one off ebay that you don't see everyday. 20 mint unused pitons. Listed as holds, I'm guessing the seller is either a dedicated aid climber or completely clueless. Strange how the current high bidder is keeping their ID private.

yeah, those old military surplus blades (and arrows, and angles) show up on Ebay often. I bought couple last summer out of curiousity, still covered in the sticky old cosmoline preservative. Cleans up nice with a blowtorch and rag ;-)
