A trace of Verplanck

In 1985 I had the privilege of climbing the south slides on Marcy with the late Jim Goodwin [Tony's dad] and George McCleland [spelled wrong probably and also I believe now deceased] of the KV Mountaineer.
Above the slide and in the cripple bush below the summit I found a long iron bar [12ft maybe]. I asked Jim where it likely can from and he said, 'Colvin's Survey'!
Its still up there as far as I know as I couldn't fathom carrying it back to Jim's below the Garden.
