Pro sport tree climbing

Recommended Posts

just thinking aloud, a new sport of tree climbing for prize money.(nothing to do with work) there will be several divisions/leagues, removals pruning etc, with a handy cap system dependant on number in the team and size of chipper etc, this sport involves climbing trees however you want, to do the tasks depending in which league you are playing, to collect as much prize money in the shortest time. league positions will be worked out after handy cap taken (may be like golf as its a sport)

i think it will take some time to work out but from tomorrow, full on training for this exciting new sport

the problem is - tree climbing isnt super spectaor friendly - every one gets a stiff neck looking up and only other climbers really understand the technical ability involved.  Its like kite surfing - all the hard core kiters love freestyle / wake style tricks because they are solid technically, but for TV / red bull etc its all about Big Air stlye which (althoug not easy) is all about doing massive jumps - Take tree climbing vs timbersport - hitting big bits of wood with an axe - jo public get this, skipping out on a branch so lightly that a knacker on a bit of sting doesnt touch the ground - meh. Mean while i'll find a link to a speed climbing comp some guys i know up in stockholm sorted out.

Isn’t that what we do anyway? Prize money being the price of the job?

if its prize money for a sport, we wouldn't have to use two anchor point etc as we are not at work 😉

For a handicap, the better the climber, the more ropes they have to use.

could be, but the idea been if its a sport its not work so you could use no ropes and free solo it 😆😆
