Maybe put the hangers on necklaces and sell them as jewellery at the next "climber's festival"/trade show.

You could also increase their value with climber autographs. You'll be rich in no time !

A Modest Marketing Suggestion

You might significantly increase your returns and sale prices as follows. You may remember the
climber who had a jugging failure in the final bolt ladder on the Nose. It was years ago but that will
only increase the sale price. Strip all those bolts and sell them as a package advertising them as the
last thing a poor soul saw before taking the big one. The price among those who are not climbers
might be increased further by smearing a little chicken blood on one of the hangers.

You are, as the Brits say, "in the van" as regards this new commercialization of climbing. Knowing
the diverse minds to be found on this site, we might even have a competition here to see who can
come up with the next big advance.

That depends, Jim. Are you selling your history or your bad ass? Or both?

So everyone knows what we're talking about - Billcoe offered me $400 to send the first four bolts in the post to the museum. At that price I"d rather just hang onto them, so I didn't rush to respond. To give you an idea of price - last year a Nose - Stoveleg bolt went for over $900 at an Access Fund auction. I'm not looking to get rid of this stuff - just realizing that I have a lot(just had to move, so got the bin out to look through and think about what I should do with them all).

from the mountain project link. not understanding the difference between an access fund auction and a personal need for money is the beginning of why this whole deal is kinda stinky.
