I have read the Tree Climbers Companion book and working through some of the knots common to the training video, subscribe to a couple of arborist YouTube channels... I don't recall the techniques you suggested from my current limited sources. I haven't climbed a tree using any of the TCI training yet, so am very new. I have spoken via phone to a TCI member that mentioned using multiple smaller limbs to share the weight, but not in detail. How does one learn to use two ropes or use the trunk for rope anchoring (unless you are referring to using a lanyard but I suspect not as you didn't use that term)?
