    Women's Arb Camp

    A pleasure to be apart of the Women's Arb Camp this year in Finland. It was a jam-packed weekend of workshops, sharing knowledge, learning new skills, spending time with friends, lots of climbing, swimming and sauna!

    Great to be able to support the women in the industry.

    ITCC Knoxville

    < Events

    What a weekend at the ITCC! A huge shoutout to all the competitors, volunteers, organizers, and sponsors. 

    Being our first World Championships, we were super excited to sponsor the Aerial Rescue event. It's a great chance to interact and support for those that came from around the world to participate with the event. This year around 77 elite climbers traveled to Knoxville to compete for the top place.

    We also had a great opportunity to partner with the International Society of Arboriculture for the International Tree Climbing Championship (ITCC) in Knoxville. Our very own Katie Faulconbridge live-streamed interviews with climbers and bought all the action live from the comp. 

    A massive congratulations to Team GB’s Josephine Hedger on becoming the 2019 World Champion!!!
