This course will be taught by TCP instructors and world renowned Treehouse builders from the TV show, The Treehouse Guys.
The course will begin with Single Rope Technique (SRT) tree climbing instruction. This will provide you with the basics of rope-setting, ascending, descending and lanyard positioning. There will be discussions related to tree climbing safety, gear, and tree assessment and inspection.
Following SRT instruction there will be discussions and hands-on instruction relating to the basics of treehouse foundation design, construction, and rigging. Detailed discussion on treehouse foundation dynamics and design working through basic scenarios involving both single and multiple trees will be presented.
We will discuss and demonstrate several simple systems for hoisting timbers into the trees. The concepts of mechanical advantage, establishing and selecting rigging anchors and the various associated tools, hardware and equipment will be covered. There will be a brief discussion/demonstration of strategies for working aloft in a saddle. We will cover tips and techniques for work positioning, tool and hardware organization aloft and working with and without ground support. We will spend quality time putting all of our newly acquired skills and information to work with a project or two in the surrounding trees.
This class will be fun and intensive. There is a lot of ground to cover in a short period of time, so be ready to learn, climb, work and have fun. Keep in mind that the beauty of a treehouse is not only seen in the finished product, but also experienced during the journey.
