Current Goal

My mission is to travel through the mountains and other less accessible locations. I do not want to be in the low-lying places!!!

I want to be photographed in places where I could be used. But don't forget me there!

About This Item

Klin / Rock Piton

In climbing, a piton is a metal spike (usually steel) that is driven into a crack or seam in the rock with a hammer, and which acts as an anchor to protect the climber against the consequences of a fall, or to assist progress in aid climbing. Pitons are equipped with an eye hole or a ring to which a carabiner is attached; the carabiner can then be directly or indirectly attached (through more equipment, such as a nylon sling) to a climbing rope.

Pitons were the original form of protection and are still used where there is no alternative. Repeated hammering and extraction of pitons damages the rock, and climbers who subscribe to the clean climbing ethic avoid their use as much as possible. With the popularization of clean climbing in the 1970s, pitons were largely replaced by faster and easier-to-use clean protection, such as nuts and camming devices. Pitons are still found in place (as 'fixed' pitons) on some established free-climbing routes in places where nuts or cams do not work; and are used on some hard aid climbs.

Ich bin selbst leider nicht weit genug gekommen in letzter Zeit. Ok, ich war in Rosenheim, aber das ist ja in Richtung Heimat des Piton. Also schick ich ihn hier an der A6 auf Weiterreise....
