tree climbing Love it.
Any body like to climb trees?
Personaly I like to climb trees.
First I use a 3mm line and toss it over the highst branch.
Next I pull over my static line and tie a figure eight then I cinch it to the branch.
Then I put on my acenders on the rope and climb up it.
After I get to the branch I sling it and fix my harness to the sling.
Then I pull up the rope and toss the oppisate end over the next branch. I then cinch down the rope to the second branch and climb onto it untie the first one and climb to the second branch.
And repeat the process agin and agin. when I get to the top I enjoy the fresh air for a while. Then rappel down.
Some times I haul my equipment bag up with me for pratice.
If you know any tricks that I may bennifit from I have started a topic in the bigwalls topic area please have a look at it
or write about them here.

When I would teach new kids my ground course included climbing a tree. I would lead it and they would follow and join me at the hanging belay. After that we would rap off back to the ground. A little tricky through the branches. I have always loved climbing things. Trees, hills, mountains, monkey bars, anything to get off the ground. 1Eric Rhicard
