tragic.i never met him.not far from home.i dunno the story,but as a climber it sounds as if he probably climbed to the top to set a pull rope,that the ground person would then pull on as he cut the top out.as you climb down the tree to set up to make your cut,you then bring out your climbing rope and then retie below the cut.it sounds like he forget to remove his climbing rope,and when he cut the top out,being still tied into the top it took him right with it of course.
iv gone as far as starting my saw with the intent to start cutting my notch before and laughing at myself for forgetting to reset my climbing rope.never actually started to cut.it's hard to know just what happen and where was actually tied into that made him forget he was still tied in.no matter now i guess anyway.just goes to show ya,we got to pay attention up there.
