Early ice protection, the thin, the fat and the weird...
A peck peg and an early nut
Salewa Ascender
Grivel's first crampons with frontpoints
Early Clog nut with just a tiny bit of taper
I was working indoors at Glasgow Climbing Centre today (cheeks still tingling after yesterdays exfoliation by wind).
Whilst there I had a chat with Willie Gorman a retired teacher who instructs climbing part time at the wall. Another instructor is making some works of art out of old climbing gear and Willie brought in some old pieces of kit he has.....
Little pieces of climbing history here....
To see Willie in action check out this video of him climbing with a few other well known faces on the Cobbler.
