G'day, Ive got to get myself up into a large white box tree about 8 or so metres to one of the branches and remove a bee colony from a hollow cavity. I will need both hands free once up there. There is a branch almost directly above where i need to be hanging so im trying to decide if my best bet is to use a rope and some sort of climbing harness or possibly even finding a safe way to attach a ladder to the branch from the ground and using a safety harness with separate rope and attachment point as i climb the ladder. Ive looked at harnesses online and im overwhelmed by the different types and no clue which would work best fot me. Id prefer something that would be comfortable to sit in for up to an hr or so but still allow me to place feet against tree if needed. I ve been asked about catching swarms etc from trees in the past but declined as i have no gear to enter a tree. So here i am and i need a bit of help with what gear i'd need for basic tree ascent, dangling in one spot for a while, then descending. Im a small man, 55kg so a small harness perhaps. I have small thighs about 6 inch diameter so something that can adjust small enough for my size. Im after a bit of a list of gear id need and recomendation on suitable harness along with how to safetly attach top of ladder to tree branch from the ground. Thanks. I will try post a pic of tree. I need to get up the branch on left side.
