Some old pins -

Pulled these couple of dodgy pins on the weekend from Warmonger at Araps.

The angle everyone relies on to stop hitting the belay ledge. This ended up being pretty loose and even though "fully" embeded it was in a flare and only had contact with the end couple of cm of the pin (you can see it if you look closely).

The leeper was a bit below the angle, and of its condition ... well, enough said! Fortunately the leeper was embeded in a perfect cam placement (0.2 X4 camelot works really well) high enough to be useful, so replacement fixed gear was not needed.

Take care out there as this type of evil can be well hidden from view and difficult to assess by just looking at the gear. Just immediately assume it is dodgy!!

If they are going cheap, then macca will probably take them, to reuse as ideal pro on doggie.
You can probably charge him more for an associated history sheet about them to accompany them.

I can prob arrange to get them personally monogrammed by the FAA and FFA of the route if he wants as well.
