Introductory Climbs

When Group climb in KokopelliAn afternoon in "Kokopelli" with Tree Climbing Planet in Portland, Oregon. (Photo by Scott Schieber)you were younger, you climbed a tree, yes? Most people did. You probably used your arms and legs--and your knees and armpits once in a while--to scramble up the branches. Recreational tree climbing with a rope and saddle is a little bit more complicated than that, but just as much fun, and certainly less risky!

These days, when most children and adults are spending far more time inside than out, recreational tree climbing is an activity that immediately brings every climber "back to nature." Once you're hooked onto a rope with a saddle around your waist and a helmet on your head, the world slows down. You begin to relax as you go aloft, and lo and behold, you're feeling like a new person! Suddenly you might be seeing your climbing tree with different eyes, and you'll never look at a tree the same way again. You might be smelling the fragrance of a recent summer rain, or hearing the wake-up calls of birds looking for mates or protecting their young.

No matter how "old" you are, you'll find that tree climbing is a safe and unusual way to spend an afternoon! Try it out! Beginners' climbs are always laughter-filled, and our private tree-climbing group outings are reputed to be the best way to celebrate a special occasion. If you come to our school with the people you work with, you may learn something about each of them that you didn't know before!

Whatever the reason or the season, we look forward to seeing you under the canopy of a beautiful climbing tree!
