Certification FAQ's and Disclaimer

Beartooth and Beartooth Alpine Pitons: For each new shipment of metal, we batch test the gear we make in-house to ensure we are satisfied with the quality of our products. Our pitons are not certified to a strength or manufacturing standard by any governing body.

Disclaimer: Climbing and mountaineering of any kind is dangerous. You assume all responsibility for your own actions. The ability to use specialized pieces of climbing equipment, including any equipment that we make, and properly assess their placement security is a skill. Seek professional instruction. All climbing equipment, including ours, should be checked regularly for cracks, fatigue, and any other indication of wear that could result in failure of the equipment. Failure to do so this may result in serious injury or death. Using any piece of climbing equipment outside of its proper placement mechanisms can result in failure and injury and/or death.
