I posted this to another thread, but thought it deserved one of its own. It is not only climbing-related, but some Friday afternoon fun.

There is a "Pink TriCam Webpage" - at http://www.swarpa.net/~danforth/climb/sinkthepink.html

It includes "Ode to a Pink Tricam", by Charles "Pinky" Danforth. Plus some other stuff on the subject.

Just as Camp 4 may be the only campsite in the world to have a book named after it, the pink tricam may be the only piece of climbing equipment in the world to have its own poem.

Well, this is doing better than my last thread, about reports from secret agents.

My interest in this was piqued (should be peaked, with climbers involved) by a post by Jello on the cams and lurps thread - subjects he knows well. He said he'd heard of a pink tri cam poem, and to help out I googled it - and found not just a poem but a website. Good grief!

I remember Walt had fixed his on the traverse after the pendulum on Royal Arches. His client could not clean it and Walt went back and couldn't retreive it either. He was bummed about losing it. It was there for several years after Walt passed away and every time I do the route I think about him. The last few times I have done the route it has either been bootied or it is covered with leaves. I miss seeing that thing and used to clip it for sentimental sake.

Oh, how wonderful!

Just got home from work and cruising ST and find this thread first. I LOVE Mr. Pink. By far my favorite piece and i just replaced the second one last week, (it's best to always have at least two, and one red and that's about it).

The poem(s) remind me of many confidence-boosting placements. I had no idea others revered Mr. Pink as much as myself. Most of my partners can't be bothered and Mr. pink and the red one go on my harness only, never makes it to the gear sling. . .

Thanks for the link Mighty Hiker, I'm off to sleep and dream now of bomber pink tri-cam placements!

Many years ago I backed off a route because it started to rain. Being young, foolish, broke, did I mention foolish and broke? I decided to leave as little gear as possible. I was in a little alcove with a perfect sized, parallel sided, pink tricam crack in the top. So I gingerly set the tricam, thread the rope through its webbing and rap. At the bottom I shake the rope a few times and viola, down comes my rope....and my tricam. Probably not one of my brighter stunts, but it did impress my partner...he never would let me set up the rap anchors after that!

I like the .5 so much that I carry two of them along with a 1 & 1.5! Tricams work where other gear does not and allow some truly amazing placements. But there comes a time when that delicate little pink strand of webbing becomes less than rosy to fall on! Most sewing shops will not close webbing loops for you but they will usually do the following modification if a water knot is used.
In order to retain some of the webbing stiffness that is desirable to help maintain position, a bar tack close to the tricam scroll pin and several longitudinal lines of stitching do the trick.
So don't retire those venerable old nuggets just yet! A pretty new ribbon is all that is required. Haven't found pink 1/2" tubular webbing out in the world unfortunately so red is close enough for me.
Much praise to the Russian master mountaineer Vitaly Abalakov, who saw the future in a chunk of flywheel one day and graciously passed his gift of genius along to climbers everywhere expecting nothing in return. He also invented the V thread used by ice climbers everywhere while escaping.

Steve, Abalokov didn't concieve the tri-cam idea. I brought prototypes with me on a trip to Russia in 1974. It was an international climbers camp in the Pamirs hosted by Vitaly (not Segei) Abalokov. I had several long discussions with him about gear, during which we exchanged many ideas. He was particularly interested in the tri-cam idea and traded some titanium pins and biners for the prototypes. Two years later, when a Russian crew visited the North Cascades, they had the Abalokov versions, cut from pulleys. These were not true logarithmic cams offering a constant angle of contact, nor was the concept Abalokov's. He knew my brother Greg had already applied for the patent, therefore his claim of some sort of "pure" motive for offering the idea gratis to the climbing community is total BS. Abalokov clearly had not thought of the idea before I showed it to him in the summer of 1974, years after Greg had begun playing with the concept.

I stand corrected Jello and backedited his name as well. The "claim" of generosity on his part is more my recollection of hearsay than any actual statement he made. Did you guys respond when the flywheel prototypes showed up in the Alex Bertulis 1978 AAJ article documenting the Soviet first ascents in the Cascades? When did the first Lowe Tricams hit the market? How about the V thread concept origination?

Fun stuff! I'll try to get Greg, the inventor, to look at this thread. But he's sort of a curmudgeon - not much into the internet thing.

Steve, we never countered Abalakov's claims because we knew he would not try to commercialize the idea. Why bother? We did have a chuckle at the idea he was offering the concept for the general good of climbers, however. That's something Jardine tried to propogate, also. Especially ironic in Jardine's case, since he became rich enough to buy a sailboat and retire to his "Ray Way" world.

I'm doing most of this historical rectification for Greg, who has never really worried about it, being content in his own genius. I personally have no genius, but I've witnessed it.

Hmmm, this one hasn't been bumped for a while. And there's a reason to do so - when I was at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City in August, someone there showed me some prototypes of tiny tri-cams. Smaller than the 0.5, that is. They were apparently near production, so maybe we'll see them in stores soon.

There's nothing on the Camp website about this - www.camp.it

Sizes smaller than 0.5 may be easier to get stuck.

There was a gear swap meet at the gym last night and in one pile of old gear offered for sale was a pink tri-cam. We joked about how beloved these things are among certain climbers (nobody we know -- but I'm sure they are perfectly nice people) and after a few minutes of repartee, tossed it back into the heap.

I'm sure you could still buy it for cheap (it didn't sell). But it will cost you dearly to get the name and number of the seller from me.

I'd not heard of the cleaning issue, but I'm the one who's always placing them... not much of a chance to clean them. But if you have a nut tool and think of it as a kind of SLCD, then it shouldn't be too much trouble.

I have a set and love them. Just can't use them passive but active they place faster than a regular can and the wire spring loads it.

I have a vintage pink tricam, with original sling, which I bought for a specific route that " could not be done without it". I've never placed it, and have no idea where it could be placed. I would be happy to let it go for only $250.
