Tree Climbing Names

climbing_pics/murv-sm.jpgMurv, aka "Nature Boy"TreeboyDavid, aka "Treeboy"A tree climbing name is awarded to someone who has set up and climbed a tree on their own for the first time. The climber is asked to come up with his or her own name, but if it isn't creative enough to satisfy the crowd, the climber is at the mercy of the group!

The idea of tree climbing names comes from different societies which give members names after they have gone through a special ceremony. In other cultures, a name is given with emergence into adulthood, or sometimes with warrior and spiritual experience. With TCI, it comes with climbing experience.

The name might be of some creature, something magical, a dominant trait, or just something easy. You'd be surprised at how much pride climbers take in their tree-climbing name!
