    Nothing fancy about that video except the work being done. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome video. I'm happy I got to see that.

    I'd never seen a climber on spurs in a "rest" position with one foot above his waist but the camera man stated Mike was a prolific rock climber as well which explained the unorthodox technique. Cool to see one climbing skill overlapping into another.

    I may show the guys the Dragon bowline one day when I'm feeling cheesy enough.

    You'll amaze them!!!

    But, I think it's spelled the dragging bowline.

    Seriously? Did you see the size of the top that Mike rigged into the haul-back zipline? Very few have that kind of skill. These days they would bring in a 100 ton crane or larger to remove that tree.

    I read that as Fancy Tree Work, plain camera work. No drones, hollywood effects, POV cams, cams being launched with tops.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
