  5. Theres a stand of c60m grand firs in Powys
  6. Modified spikes for rope ascent. The Basic wasn't the best choice of ascender as it has a locking gate on the cam, but it's just what i had going spare. Bolt into the lower part of the ascender where it slots behind the gaff, and epoxy resin between the shank and the ascender for extra security.
  7. <p>hey Drew...Just wanted to say nice one for sharing such consistently informative stuff on here! I'm just getting into using SRT as a work system on a rope wrench...from what i can work out its all about the throwline skills...am i right...are you getting your TIP installed from the ground or do you ever have to rearrange your TIP once youre up there? i can see that being a pain! thanks, Joe</p>

  8. Received this message from a close friend who's doing arb work in Sydney at the moment...I followed it up and the guy is mad keen but the timing is not right for me...sounds like an OK firm with nice kit and stuff....heres the message - 'there is a guy in Sydney looking for 3 to 4 arborists if anyone is interested contact him as he is a little desperate im sure a great deal can be struck. the guy has a mewp and uses it as often as is needed so nothing dodgy has to be climbed he is also the head of the arb association out here so he is a credible guy. if interested his email is generalforest@bigpond.com, office number 0297482323 mob. 0418245502 dial code +61. he said he will offer sponsorship so anyone who has come on a working visa previously will be fine to come again and im sure you can get you flight paid for also if you play your cards right like i said he is well keen to get a few climbers by the new year. let me know if anyone contacts him or is interested as he is in contact with me and if no one is interested i can let him know.'
  9. I would reccomend using a tape sling as a footloop. stand slightly to one side of the tree with one spike in the tree and the other foot in the loop.
  10. i don't have permission to climb them however i have been involved with tree climbing projects on the land before so i cant see it being an issue especially if there's a possibility of the trees being nationally recognized or significant.
  11. Alright chaps, I've recently been lucky enough to stumble upon a grove of trees that i genuinely feel could be serious contenders for tallest tree in the country. Theyre close to the welsh border in Powys. Its a mixed grove of coniferous trees, Sequoia, Douglas Fir, Thuja and Grand Fir. There's a stand of Grand Fir there that are certainly around the 60m mark, though i havent had a chance to get in there with a clinometer...not sure if its even possible to get a reading....so who's up for climbing them??? Big shot jobby, bit of SRT to access the crown, then about a thousand sappy changeovers to the top. Probably safest to use the big shot poles to reach the very top too. Theres 3 trees that i feel are the tallest so i reckon you'd want a crew of around 6 to climb them all in a day......keen?
  12. hey everyone - i highly reccomend these. only 35quid and as far asi can make out are pretty much exactly the same as the stein evo jackets. Haven't washed mine yet but its still completely waterproof (had it about 5 months). and its got great scratch/tear resistance. Adrenaline Hi-Viz Men's Jacket - Bikewear
