I am wondering how they climbed that, if there were one or two others on the other side of the tree to
flip the safety/climbing rope up as they climbed, on a smaller tree/pole it is easy to do by yourself, on this
one it would be difficult. They always said I was not smart enough to be afraid of heights, I think this would
be fun. I wonder if they were climbing it to top it before they cut through the base to fall it. Thank you for sharing.

I’d want a parachute instead of a hard hat.

Gus asks a good question. How did they get up there. And how much higher would they need to go? Sure wouldn’t be me

Saw a documentary on a guy that did this for studying trees. Would go 350 or more feet up in the Redwoods. Shot a lead line out of a crossbow and they used that to pull his climbing rope up. Didn’t go into the climbing technique after that, and I wouldn’t know the tricks anyway, but it seemed like he could hang and climb in mid air on the rope. These guys look like they’re doing it a little differently, but maybe you just can’t see the rope.

Don’t know for sure, Joe. Don’t think it’s shopped because I took it from an article my brother sent me. Never know…...
