Equipment Check – helpful hints
- Bring double locking carabiners, that open and close easily, no sticking
- Cover your hand saw with duct tape
- Bring a hard hat with a chin strap (so it doesn’t fall out of the tree while climbing)
- Ropes, saddle, flipline, carabiners and all mechanical devices must be in good working order.
Skill waiver for CTW credential candidates:
As a participant of an ISA chapter tree climbing championship you may waive the work climb portion of the skills exam for the ISA Certified Treeworker Climber Specialist certification exam providing you satisfy all other requirements. Here’s the form.
Individuals who compete in or volunteer for an ISA Tree Climbing Championship are covered by the ISA Climbers Event Policy. This includes coverage for set-up and tear-down of events (for volunteers) as well as during the event when in the climbing zones. All chapter events fall under this policy.
ALL CLIMBERS AND VOLUNTEERS MUST FILL OUT THIS INSURANCE FORM PRIOR TO THE EVENT. (Click to download.)
The awards ceremony will be held following the Master’s Challenge at the park. Your entry fee includes a commemorative t-shirt, fruit, water and lunch. The top four or five contestants from the Men’s Division of the Tree Climbing Championship will participate in the Masters Challenge on Sunday. A Women’s Master’s Challenge will also be held. A copy of the final standing for the preliminaries will be posted during the Master Challenge.
If you have any questions you may call the chapter office at 559/784-8733.
