This used climbing stopper has a very special story that goes with it so please take a moment to read.

The previous owner of it, Ian Gill, a badass Yosemite big wall climber from back in the day, had beaten cancer and alcoholism and, as a reward, had been training for a year to solo climb Zenyatta Mondatta, an A4 route on El Capitan in Yosemite. Sadly and heartbreakingly, the cancer returned and Ian was physically unable to pursue his dream. Ian passed away with his loving family by his side last November.

Ian's gear was sold as part of a fundraiser for his family - this is one of Ian's stoppers that I acquired from that sale. I will donate a portion of the funds to Ian's family from each of the pieces I sell that have Ian's stoppers in them.

The purple rock climbing stopper is attached with a hand wire wrapped bail attached to a pendant slider; the necklace clasp is a magnetic closure with an extra secure twist lock. The cord is handcrafted Japanese Kumihimo braiding made from satin cords in coordinating shades - the cord is specifically made to look like a climbing rope.

The necklace measures 16" in length.

Each climber's necklace that I create is unique, with varied colors and braiding patterns and the pendants can be stoppers, cam lobes, or miniature figure eight belay plates. I can customize colors and pendants (if you have one of your own you would like me to make into a necklace) - contact me for more information.
