    Do you do much weekend work? Also where abouts in Hampshire do you work?
  5. Becoming Competent

    Once again thanks for all the replies. TIMON you said you started late, out of curiosity how old were you when you started? I'm 25 at the moment, but I'm hoping to see some longevity out of this career.
  6. Becoming Competent

    Haha I'm sure there are people who are top notch straight away. But it does help to hear that it's taken people years to get to a level they consider good.
  7. Becoming Competent

    Thanks for all your replies. It's good to hear that it's going to take time. I've recently joined a large arb company and hopefully this will give me the experience and volume of work I need to get better. I was just kind of wondering if everyone struggles to start with.
  8. Becoming Competent

    Hi there, I'm relatively new to the arb industry and got my climbing tickets in October. Have climbed a fair bit now but not an awful lot. Certain things I feel I am ok at, however there's a lot that I am not good at. I often struggle moving around the tree in an efficent and speedy manner and quite often get my lines tangled. I've been getting quite annoyed at myself over this and basically not being good (don't get me wrong I don't expect to be good immediately). But I'm just wondering roughly how long did it take people to become competent? Either yourselves or new starters that you've seen? I'm aware everyone will have different aptitudes immediately, some may fly around without much experience and some may struggle (like me). But I'd just like to know. Thanks Alex
