    1. At first I thought it might be Jerry Beranek buy you're right, that's not a redwood. But if you're interested in climbing Jerry's work is a must read. The man is fearless and very intelligent.

  3. I tink the hardest part is to swirl that lasso up such a large tree trunk.

  4. I had an uncle that was a linesman for the phone company. He basically ran up the poles with spikes and a climbing belt.

  5. I have that photo framed on a wall in the man-cave derived from a Redwing boot poster from the 80s. FYI there is another guy on the other side as they did those in tandem.
