I was climbing some sandstone corner with a thin seam and had no protection until a small akward fingerpocket took the pink tricam perfectly. I don't have a picture of the placement but here is the pink tricam. There was a good cam a bit higher but I was happy to have my tricam that day.

Those tricams obviously need more love. Way too clean to have stories bound within their webbing

You are absolutely correct sir, I was searching for a picture I might have of a pink tricam. I edited my post with a more appropriate picture. The original picture is the same tricam actually brand new. So appropriately there were no stories attached to that tricam...yet

A pink tricam saved my friend from a much worse fall when a green c3 popped out of the final corner of the Slow Children pitch at Index!

I carry my pink tricam on sport climbs.

My condolences.  Rest assured though, had you popped off. It would've held fast.

Climbed eight routes today and had the pink on the belt for all. Used it on each even if it was just superfluous. I LOVE that bastard! Used the red and a big blue too, but I was determined to place that dang pink on every one.

I once took a new follower up her first trad lead without explaining to her how cams or tricams work. It took her 15 minutes but she got the pink tricam out of the wall.

I don't think I'd climb with a partner placing tricams on every pitch.

I was having a good time! I was just being a smartass placing it on each climb. Like I said, I chunked it in just to do it, plus my new-to-trad second got to see some different applications. The thread is Pink Tricam LOVE! Embrace, brother...

Wish they had it as a mesh belly shirt, early 80s style.
