Tricams article follow up

I just got an e-mail from Kat, the editor of Argus where my article on tricams appeared. It seems someone even liked the article. Here's the message they sent to Kat:

I thought the current argus was the best version to come out in 3 or 4 years, really top notch.

I really appreciated reading the technical articles about tricams and anchor setups - for me, Argus has relevance to the extent it includes technical articles like these. I suspect the average climbers don't really care about new routes being put up, as we rely slavishly on the guidebooks put out by simey etc. Appreciate the historical record but....

No one's ever written to say how much they liked a maths article I wrote.


  1. ahh, that was nice of your mum to write in :-D

  2. Yeah it was. I've never really known why she joined the Victorian Climbing Club --- I guess it was just for the magazine.

  3. Nice article, Dion. Not to mention that i like the lonesome red camalot...Bruno would be proud to see it that scratched already ;)
