I met a climber yesterday who did this very cool vase made entirely of retired climbing gear (rope, nuts, harness). She sent this photo below (thanks, Sarah!) It's a very cool example of upcycling.

I thought it would be cool to see who else out there has cool art or anything else made from retired climbing gear. Piton bottle openers. Door mats made of climbing ropes. Post em up!

I took a large slab of ash with a rough cut edge, tapped 5 holes and sunk ancient ice screws from back in the day and a pick off an old X-tool for a coat rack. Still needs a good stain and better mounting bolts. It holds a mountain of coats for my family. Have another coatrack underway on barn board with old picks and pins.

Love the rope door mat. I remember somewhere there was a guide (step-by-step instructions) on how to do this. Does anyone have a link?

Here's an installation I'm currently showing which features my Annapurna rope.




















I call it "Waiting for a dope"

I might use it as a prop in a play I'm writing by the same name.

Will have some for sale for the TG event.


Good idea with the bongs. I'll have to dig them out.
