    Default Cone picking pics for Bounce

    I reckon the rest of you can look, too . These were put up in one of the old versions of the THouse, so many of you may have seen them before.

    Sean and I were in chat, and he asked about cone picking. These were taken in the pre-digital days, 1999 I think. The first 3 are me, the last two are my climbing partner, who is my wife .

    I can't believe those skinny tops don't bust.

    Sometimes they do, Butch. Sometimes they do.

    You have to plan on it happening, take the proper precautions, and learn the techniques to help keep the tree in one piece while you're up there working it.

    I wish that was always the case, John...but those little diameters can be fragile when a climber is up there.
