I have a lot of items that are of historical interst that I will be offering for sale. Contact me off Forum if you are interested in any of my ongoing offerings.

COPIES OF ORDEAL BY PITON FOR SALE
I recently asked Steve Roper to send me the last box of his paperback classic, Ordeal By Piton. Published in 2003, OBP is the finest collection of Yosemite climbing accounts and commentary ever assembled in one book and a fabulous read.




Many of the now familiar Glen Denny photos fill these pages and round out the presentation beautifully.

All copies are signed by Steve Roper as shown.

The available copies are selling for $25 + shipping and may show a touch of shelf wear.

USPS Priority Flat Rate padded Envelope is $5. Media rate will have to be calculated indiviually.

A great opportunity to buy an out of print classic!

New addition! As of 3/11/2011 I am the distributor of Bonnie Kamps' DVD documentary of the First Ascent of the Diamond on Longs Peak by Dave Rearick and Bob Kamps in 1960.

You passed on it once already! LOL

British military issue WWII era. The horizontal appears to be hand forged hard steel. The vertical is stamped and finished by hand. I do have several of these available.







I even have some of both still wrapped in waxed paper. Those fastidious Brits!

About half of the copies of OBP have already sold.

After the 2007 gathering in Yosemite in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the NW Face of Half Dome, I had Royal Robbins, Gerry Gallwas and Mike Sherrick sign 23 numbered Lost Arrow nut tools.





This one was sold for $200. to benefit Tarbuster and I have several more of these to sell to benefit the community. I am asking for the same $200. price plus shipping.

The first one that sells will have the proceeds go to help Rich Romano.

The second one will have the proceeds go to help a young Tibetan man who is doing priceless cultural work in recording and thereby saving old traditional Bon music and dance while it still exists to capture.

More on this fundraising effort as these sell in support of worthy causes.
