Sporthaus Schuster Pitons
These pitons date from the late 1930s and are really remarkable pieces of history. The craftsmanship of these pitons shows in the attention to detail and the fine finish of the product. Hand made pitons were very expensive for the time and Sporthaus Schuster gave climbers a piece of equipment worth the investment.
Sporthaus Schuster opened in 1913 in Munich, Germany. They have been a family owned retailer of fine mountain equipment for more than one hundred years.
The Yosemite Climbing Association has several similar pitons in their collection.
