Well it depends on what im doing if im taking down a tree i usually spur climb. but if im pruning the tree or any thing else i rope climb because spurs damage the tree. But in that picture i was using a two rope system where my main climbing technique was spur but i was using a art back up with a figure 8 decender. How i would set up with just that is a double rope system where you loop the rope over a branch connect one end to you harness and tie a friction hitch around your climb rope with a prusik loop and then attach that to the harness.
