Detailed Product Description


US ARMY SURPLUS HORIZONTAL ROCK PITON. 4 inches long, 1/8 inch thick,
similar shape and placement to a Chouinard/Black Diamond Lost Arrow.
Made for the 10th Mountain Division.



A ORIGINAL UNOPENED SEALED
BOX OF US ARMY HORIZONTAL ROCK PITONS.

100 NEW GALVANIZED US ARMY HORIZONTAL PITONS

100 PITONS FOR ONLY $150


Lurking in our warehouse we just uncovered a case of 600 US Army Horizontal Rock Pitons we bought 20 years ago! The original Army boxes of 100 each, are printed with typical army jargon and numbers, and are unopened!

These are all Horizontal Rock Pitons, 4 inches long and 1/8 inch thick (.125). We believe they are galvanized and not covered in that black paint-like/cosmoline anti-rust goop. 

They are still usable, such as for leaving behind on long rappels. Rappel anchors hold just your body weight, not a fall, so they do not need to be as strong as a pin used to hold a fall. I have used these for easy aid climbing, back in the day.


We have two of the five styles of pitons that the US Army issued during WW2 and the Cold War. They are new and are offered only as collectibles. If you die using them, please sue the US Army, not us.  

They probably were made by WYOTT in the 1970s. WYOTT was and still is a maker of steel kitchen equipment. The Army knew them well because they also made Mess Kits.

USA Postage is $20 for 150 Pitons, Canada is $50, International is $70.
