I am unable to climb trees and its embarassing. To blame myself or my equipment is very poor show. Just look at this young girl's effortless speed-climb with one hand. She is a weak climber compared to the adults who can swing between tree tops.

On my return trip, I would like to film from the canopies with a light weight professional video camera. I'm in London. Where can I learn the necessary skills?

Also, if you have tried out many helmets, could you please take a look at my thread in Gear Selection. Thank you! :)

You can also find much information through TCI - Tree Climbers International.

Thanks, I followed the same link from your similar thread. I wasn't that keen because the site comes across as very commercial and money seeking.

However, I am now pestering their forum users :)
