Hi John and Marty,
If the plan is simply to post a photo or photos of that piton at Marty’s website, then please be my guest. Bill House gave me that piton himself, sometime in the mid-1980s. I interviewed him for an article for either Summit or Climbing….can’t remember which! If he told me anything about the pin’s origins, I don’t remember.
John, it’s possible I have a clip of the article somewhere in my files, and if you need it I can try to dig it up. No guarantees, though. Of course, the AAC library will have it, though obviously it would be better to know the date…..
