In response to Mikl's post re horrible old climbing boots I dug out the box of ancient gear that has followed me round the world, (mostly unused) for the last 30 years. Here's a sample:

From Rock


For the under-35s, what is it?

For the over-35s (especially for the over-50s) it's a join-the-dots puzzle.

Hints: (1) It came out of the top pitch of Excalibur (Wolgan) in the late 1970s. (2) It's actually upside down.

Not sure I can join the dots, but I'm betting it used to say "Clog" on there somewhere.

Good to see at least someone else remembers their Australian climbing history .
Amazed that my cryptic comment failed to give it away to the others . .
And surely others can make out the W & B . . .

Pretty sure Clogs would have been on wire
Chouinards would have been modern hex shape, also prob not available

Cheers

As far as I know Ewbank made some basic hex stock nuts.

I had a set of Ewbank hex's for my first rack. They looked like this one. In better shape though.

Ewbank made 'Crackers' in about '68, in a range of sizes . .
'A' to 'K' covered from about 3/8" to 3 1/2" .
Cut from hex bar of different sizes and drilled.

I'd need to stack ten of them side by side for my futile 'project'.
