Photos of Historical Climbing Gear

So I am starting to write a collection of articles on the evolution of climbing gear for Climber Magazine. I can’t say what they are on but they will start in next months Climber Magazine. I am therefore desperately in need of decent hi-res images of any old and by old I am talking preferably pre 1980’s climbing equipment, that you don’t mind being used to illustrate these articles.

So things I might talk about are:

  1. Climbing Irons/crampons/ice axes
  2. Carabiners
  3. Protection
  4. ropes
  5. slings
  6. harnesses

But basically I am really keen to see what people haven their own collections to then maybe share with the climbing world through these articles.
