Get some jobs in and pay for a climber to do them.
You the Groundy , watching a professional at work.
Good way too learn.
the only victory that counts is the one over yourself

Best way to learn to climb is too climb as much as possible in a work capacity,by that i mean getting out on branches(to prune) or getting into a work position to use the chainsaw.
You can pick up lots of tips from watching other people climb on Youtube or facebook etc but in my opinion practice really does make you a more efficient and productive climber.

Start low and slow
Slow is smooth
Smooth is fast.

Watch people and learn from them.

Plan 3 moves ahead. So you don't have to re climb a limb/area.

I learn so much from youtube, both the dos and the don'ts! Have a good look around as there are many good tip videos for the amateur right up to the highly experienced.
