Just for fun some buddies and i like to show off everyonce and a while and near the lower 10-15 feet of the trunk we hang upside down in our saddles and use our feet to decent our knot...kinda looks like spiderman...kids love it. But as always safety first. so it is only everyonce and a while. Never done it while working though
Nice touch using the feet to advance the hitch. Worth practicing just above the ground first to know you can control the descent without loosing control.
He would improve the working life of his shoulders if he used a lanyard when in position for the cuts and it could save him from a nasty swing too. His rope angle was pretty flat and just holding on with one arm and cutting with the other is asking for trouble.
Looks like he thinks of the quick way for today without thinking of the short and long term consequences.
2 things.....i think my v.t would be too close into my harness for me to be able to adjust it with my feet, and secondly i have my v.t set so delicately id much rather be able to feel it with my fingers than my boots.....great vid though big fella
