Barefoot is great on a tree. Barefoot/rope interface not so good. If you use a webbing footloop to get foot power on the rope it's pretty comfortable barefoot. So the biggest challenge I see climbing barefoot is that it limits how I can apply foot/leg power to the rope.

Not intended as a climbing technique, simply a way to access your tree boat, hammock at the end of the day.

Agreed the skin and rope contact may turn you away from this idea, because in some cases it may be even dangerous.
