Nice climb Arena! I read in another post that you took a junior climbing course? That's cool, I myself am 32 but I want to learn more about the art of climbing as well, Kind of hard to want to learn to climb when you will be competing with guys with the kind of $$ to pick up the best tool in the history of tree removal.... There is a guy in my area that just recently bought a Nifty SD 64 and bro when I tell you game over, I mean GAME OVER. I have operated all types of lifts but his Nifty is just nuts....

I know how you feel dude but when it comes down to it no matter how much nice stuff you have if your work isn't good you'll never go anywhere haahah. You know what they say, if you can't be rich know someone who is. Haha
