Speed Climbing

The object here is to climb from the ground, 90 feet to the tops of the spar trees in the fastest possible time. Time will start at the starting signal and be over when the climber has rung the bell at the top of the tree. These are the men who climb and top the trees in the woods. They also hang the rigging in those trees. The belt and spurs they use in this contest are the same, or similar, to the ones they use at work. Notice that these fellows never stop once they start the race. They climb with their legs and pull with their hands and arms. Watch this contest closely. It gets done quickly.
