My thought was : how can WISPA help improve safety for members? I climb more than I care to, frankly. Safety is the #1 objective. *nothing* is more important. Consider weather, weight, structure, attachment, ropes.. the list is long and I agree, a seminar/training is the way to go. Between jetski rides, I'd like to see that. :-)

Hmmmm, sounds to me like you better find a class than can teach you common sense cause you sure ain't got any. I agree with Bob's rant......... with one addition....... IF (and that is a big if) the local fire dept has a ladder it is only going to go up less than 100' for one and they are not trained (in general) in plucking someone off the side of a tower.

My suggestion..... spend the money on the training and equipment to do it right before you hurt (or kill) yourself or someone else.......

Just my $.02 worth

To be completely honest. Only if it's free. Otherwise, I'll stay tied off 100% of the time and not let anyone stand below me. From there, I'll just pick up pointers as I go along and use common sense (something no class can teach me).

How about a training seminar for climbing - OSHA safe.

Actually, I already own it. Bill Curd sold me his extra one 2 weeks ago.

Hey order the one with the aluminum bar seat in it.
It's only like 20 dollars more, and it's a lot more comfortable to be on a tower in.

I just got one for my guy and hey says it's way more comfortable than the other one and he can spend more time on a tower.
