Using climbing spurs/spikes

Uses:
To ascend a tree by creating a false platform by digging the spurs into the bark of the tree and leaning back on a lanyard to hold you in place.



Additional info:
This technique should only be used when removing a tree as the spurs can damage the cells of the tree (the exception being using them on palm trees in countries such as australia where it can be the only method to ascend the tree).
