Congratulations! This is very exciting. Feel free to reach out for a rec climb whenever you want or to try some gear you may not have. A company like Davey will have lots of dudes of varying character so get your skin thickened up good. You're gonna do great.My plan had always been to get some exp at the company I started tree removal with and then move on to a better company- and now its happening. I applied with Davey and signed my acceptance of employment today. Before stumbling onto this forum, I hadnt thought much about becoming a climber even though Ive always loved climbing whatever was around. But it got me thinking and then I went to a rec climb and watched people moving through trees in ways I had never imagined. So when I applied at Davey, I went for the Climber Trainee position and got it. Im ecstatic and terrified and very thankful that I found this site. Im looking forward to the posts making a lot more sense now and learning from the years of combined exp around here. Wish me luck!!!!
