Pulling the crux moves on Triple Overhangs, 10a, the best pitch in the Wasatch! <br /> <br />Perspective makes the corner above look short.  But it's a sweet, sustained 5.8 handcrack that goes for about 70 - 80 feet. <br /> <br />Photo by Vicente Planelles.

Found this piece of history when I got off route (left) leading the second pitch of Triple Overhangs. It may be one of the pitons that bsmoot commented about on the main page.

I considered clipping the piton but it pulled right out. After traversing back to the right I found the belay ledge below the Triple Overhangs themselves.

Looks a lot like these old pitons.
