Our athlete Fabrizio Zangrilli is enjoying a little downtime in Kathmandu during his 9 month guiding and climbing season in the Himalaya. We are hoping to help him in identifying an historic piton he pulled from the Basque Route a few weeks ago. Here's the note from Fabrizio and an image:
"I started going through the photos from this trip and will have some nice ones to share soon, however I came across this photo, I found this piton on the Basque Route (often called the Cesen) and am trying to figure out its origin. Might be hard, as obviously homemade, but would be good to do. I put a picture of it on my Facebook athlete page and an offer for a set of tricams or pronuts to the person who can help figure out how it got there. Any ideas of how I can start to figure it out would be appreciated."
