What happens when you enlist the help of a professional tree climber, expert tree rigger and rope safety specialist to build the ultimate rope swing?
We head deep into the woods with Waldo Etherington, a man who’s forged a career and a life travelling all around the world climbing trees, to create the guide to making the perfect rope swing. From types of tree to use and what to look out for, what to what kind of terrain you should aim to swing above and types of rope and knot, here’s our guide to nailing one of life’s key skills.
We’re firm believers that flying through the air suspended from an organic structure is one of life’s simple pleasures and something we should all be doing far more of. So, whether you’re in it for the nostalgia of well spent childhood, making up for lost time or perhaps just keen to spice up your weekend woodland walks, we’ve got you covered.
