I have a Qld mate who still swears by titons. I am not allowed to climb with him unless I yell at the top of my voice "Placed the titon", every time I use one, even though I have to borrow them off his rack to do so!

If a suitable museum venue arises, it sounds like many a contributer/s to this Forum could populate it with priceless relics of climbing history.

Think of all the 'original' bolts etc that Safer Cliffs Vic, has in its possession!

A recent article said some of the original Harding bolts off the topout of The Nose route of El Cap fetched hundreds of dollars each, from avid history buffs.
