Sink The Pink!!!
The Pink Tri-Cam Fan Page
Ode to a Pink TricamOh Pink's the one I love to place
when I'm alone way up in space
on some exposed and airy face.
They sink where other gear won't go.
But it's often hard to get them out;
But that's why you're the one on lead
"Oh quit your whimpering," you rumble,
Although it sometimes takes a while,
Pink will do what all the rest.
-- Charles "Pinky" Danforth
charles, i laughed until i cried. i face a ritual ragging every time i produce those fantastic pieces of pro. but i persevere in singing their praises. thanks for providing a good laugh! cormac.
I saw this post and had to read About pink tri-cams used on lead And know that these were words to heed. Many climbers seem to crack, When, seeking pro from off their rack, And fearing falls with too much slack Above that last piece placed below. They wonder how far they will go And if, perhaps, that piece will blow. Assuage the doubts that plague your mind By seeking pink-the tricam kind- A solid placement you will find Will lay your falling fears to rest. Confidence will swell your chest Still ever upwards towards your quest. That little pink clipped to your rope Will often be your only hope And means by which you just might cope. Please forgive this little ditty And mock it not with flaming pity... It's just that pinks are so damn pretty!
