Vertical Archaeology in Alpinist Magazine

Vertical Archaeology contributed to the “Tool User” feature in Alpinist #54.

We dug into our archives and pulled out two beautiful vintage European Fifi hooks from the 1930s. The article tells the story of a close call on the Bonatti Pillar where the humble Fifi saved the day and gives some background on their design and use. I look forward to contributing more unique artifacts and uncovering more fascinating climbing history.Fifi hook
