Tree Climbing: Advancing your climbing line while aloft

We believe trees offer valuable opportunities for recreation, fitness, meditation or work. For these reasons, we believe tree climbing should be as ubiquitous as riding a bike. Our mission is to help our community learn to safely climb & appreciate these beautiful structures!

About the event

This class is perfect for someone who is new to climbing trees & folks who've either attended our previous climbing classes OR have been climbing on their own for a bit. 

Class Structure: 

- We will review how to setup your climbing system & install your climb line in the tree from the ground 

- We will then climb a tree and (with the help of an instructor) advance our climbing line to a second anchor point in the tree

We will learn: 

- How to select an appropriate tree to climb

- How to select an appropriate life support tie in point in the tree 

- How to install our climbing system in the tree

- How to advance (climb) to our initial tie in point in the tree

- How to use a life support lanyard to secure ourselves to the tree while we advance our main climbing line

- How to safely advance our main climbing line 

- How to safely climb to our second tie in point (anchor point) in the tree

- How to safely decend out of the tree once our climb is complete 

What to Bring & Wear:

- Water & Snacks that you may need for the duration of the class

- Closed toe shoes (ideally a hiking-type shoe that covers your ankle) 

- Clothing that can move with you (fitness, yoga, hiking, workout, etc.)

Age & Ability Range:

- Classes are designed for ages 15 and up

- Folks younger than 15 can attend the class with an adult that will help the child follow along in the class (not a "drop off" class for kiddos)

- Tree climbing tends to work different muscles than other activities (good thing!)

- You'll likely have success in the class if you're able to get up from a seated position on the floor with 1 hand or less & can walk up a small flight of stairs with little to moderate fatigue
