Oregon Ponderosa Climb was created by Holden
I've been climbing for a couple years, but took an SRT class with Tim \"Tengu\" Kovar a couple weeks ago (I'm fortunate enough to live about 40 minutes away from New Tribe's \"Portland\" tree climbing sites).

Two weekends later we headed to central Oregon where I found many beautiful trees. I decided to start blogging and cataloging my climbs.

This is my blog page showing pictures of a gorgeous Ponderosa Pine I climbed: http://treeclimb.blogspot.com/2008/10/tree-1.html

Last year my 11 year old son and 69 year old dad and I did a guided climb with Rob Miron of Pacific Tree Climbing Institute. We climbed up a 230 foot Douglas Fir outside of Eugene, OR. It was incredible.

There are a few pictures here: http://www.theschiebers.com/Pictures/pic_archives_0068.htm
(scroll down past all the Ironman and family photos, the tree is there!)

Probably one of the most detailed climb reports I've ever read, really excellent. Gorgeous Ponderosa Pine. Throwline burn? That's NEVER happened to me!. Well... it happens less now, pain is an amazingly effective deterrent.

I'm thinking you can get more height per pull on a Yo-Yo. Are you standing up on the foot loop and pulling rope through the I'D at the same time? If you're already doing that then maybe shorten your foot loop strap a little to get more per stroke.
