As I removed the pit from an avocado this evening I thought to myself, "Dang, these things are hard as rocks... I bet you could take a whipper on one of these if you threaded it with some 5.5 tech cord..." This caused me to reflect on the early days of trad climbing and how many of our dirt-bag predecessors were so bold as to remove the legs from cast iron ovens and hammer them into granite cracks, thus creating the world's dirt-bag pitons.
Forum purpose: Share some funny (maybe even realistic) ideas of every day things which may be used as rock-pro for today's modern dirt-bagger.
I submit for your future, micro-crack, aid climbing endeavors: The piton butter-knife blade (warning: for aid climbing only, not rated for falls)
Propane Tanks: Coleman stove size for large offwidth/fist cracks, Backyard Grill size for squeeze chimneys
