    How do you keep yourself motivated?

    My motivation comes from a mortgage, 3yr old and a 6yr old. Oh and our move to Aus next year.

    Buy using the other end of your rope might just get you up a different top in a big tree, would just need to carry a spare pursik or whatever you want to climb on.then while climbing up on that end your main anchor can be slackened off transferring your weight on to your other line. Good effort by the way,

    Sometimes climbing will both ends of your rope can be helpful if your strop isn’t long enough to get you higher.
  7. Tie rope off to the full height of your ladder, then remove ladders from site.

    topping scotts pine

    Any reduction works on pines will look shite and will cause problems in the future. Leave it or remove it. There are some trees that are just not meant to be touched. A tree like that in that position will be your bill board for years, just bear that it mind.

    Sometimes helps to loosen your prusik then pull tight again. Or depends on what rope and prusik combo your using as some are hard/soft
