I am giving thanks (this Thanksgiving week) by clearing out my packed garage. I came across these oldies and goodies. I am hoping that others will post photos of what is hiding in the dark recesses of their gear rooms. It is so indicative of how quickly Canyoneering has evolved that tools and techniques from just 10 years ago are now outdated and "old"? Honest attempts to prevent rope grooves, early rappel devices and a few prototype Fiddlesticks: Tom, remember the aluminum tent pole Fiddlestick (the Fiddlestick of Death)? This is the first prototype of the original, Aguanchor. It was designed to tie into the Sandtrap. We've come a looooooooong way, baby!
