pamper pole
 n.— «When Tully approached the Pamper Pole—a 25-foot pole with a one-foot square platform perched atop it—he was nervous, but willing. After the 25-foot climb to the top, Tully clambered onto the platform and just sat for a moment.…The helmeted, harnessed Tully stood upon the small platform and looked out toward a trapeze suspended in the air 8 feet out from the pole and one foot above.…He flung himself skyward and grabbed the trapeze.» —“Program Builds Trust, Knocks Down Barriers” by Ginny Apple Hartford Courant (Connecticut) Aug. 14, 1983.
