Original Vintage Spud Troll
The story goes that some climbers found nuts(as in nuts and bolts) lying beside the Snowdon railway line when they were off to climb in the 1950’s. Thinking they would be better than the pebbles and chockstones currently in use, they threaded the nuts onto a piece of rope and ‘hey presto! a new form of rock protection could be jammed into a crack to make an anchor much like a nut.
The newly formed climbing equipment manufacturers, Clog and Troll, were quick to get in on the act, creating aluminium versions of the Spud and the nut
The words "TROLL '' are staped on the shell surface.
