Public Climbs Private Events Guided Session Basic Tree Climbing Course

 


Public Climbs

Our introductory course is ideal for individuals or groups. Many of our climbers have organized birthday parties, scout groups, private schools, camps, and church youth programs. Tree climbing can provide a bonding experience for co-workers and families.
Tree for All introductory climbs can be best described as a “soft-adventure.” You make the experience as challenging as you like. Ropes will be set up ahead of time and you’ll be given a brief introduction and demonstration. We provide professional climbing gear including saddles and helmets.
First time tree climbers generally find an unexpected sense of joy and exhilaration in the canopy…experienced climbers call it "tree time." Leaves rustling, birds singing and the gentle movement of the branches create wonderful moments that you’ll treasure always.
Introductory climbs may be held at several locations but are offered consistently at Roswell, Alpharetta, and Brookhaven.

Guided Climbs

This course is perfect for parents and child, children with parent, couples, co-workers, and best friends.

Climbing with your instructor, guided climbs are best limited to a maximum of three climbers. More advanced than our introductory climb, this challenge will give you a better sense of what recreational tree climbing is all about. It will allow more opportunity to interact with your instructor and the tree.

Guided climbs offer a great intermediary step between introductory climbs and the decision to take the more comprehensive Basic Tree Climbing Course (BTCC).

In this class, Tree for All provides exposure to the throw bag and alternate foot looping techniques.  You will be ascending while using the Doubled Rope Technique (DdRT).  Bat Hangs and Limb Walking will heighten the adventure.  This half day tree climbing experience will take you higher into the trees. All knots and ropes are preset by qualified instructors.  Only professional climbing gear is used.

Scheduled by appointment only. Children should be 10 years or older. Minors (under 18) must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Minimum class size is 3.

Basic Tree Climbing Course

This class is intended for recreational climbers (18 years or older) who are making a commitment to the sport. Safety considerations are fundamental and emphasized in all aspects of this class. BTCC is highly recommended to anyone considering purchasing gear for recreational tree climbing.

 

This course has become an internationally recognized standard designed by Tree Climber’s International (TCI). The Basic Tree Climbing Course teaches proficiency using Doubled Rope Technique (DdRT). You will develop “muscle memory” by repeatedly tying the knots critical for safe climbing. Other modules include managing the throw weight, alternate foot assists, doubled rope end climbing (DREC) and hazard detection. After each module, you’ll have time to practice each element.

The two day course is very comprehensive and physically active. You’ll need adequate sleep, protein and hydration. Your muscles may be sore but you’ll enjoy a great sense of accomplishment when finished. After completion, you’ll be offered a written exam. You’ll be awarded a lifetime membership in TCI, a supplemental DVD taught by Peter Jenkins (father of recreational tree climbing) and a certificate of achievement from TCI.

Class size minumum is 2 students, 3 students maximum . We try to fill our classes... if not fully booked, TFA may book additional students to fill your class. All gear is provided for this class, however, some climbers at this level may wish to use their own gear. Please confer as only approved professional gear may be used for BTCC.
