Geocache Description:

I have lots of training trees around Lichfield.  This is my latest and favourite for practising SRT.  Currently experimenting with a rope wrench.  Roped tree climbing is hazardous and you need to be competent and make competent decisions.  Neither I, Geocaching or any one else apart from yourself are responsible for your safety.   The tree has been selected with safety factors in mind though. I roped through the boul.

A 50 m rope through the boul will do it but allow more if you want to belay someone back from the anchor point, e.g., Petzl ID in lock at the anchor point.  Get the rope through the boul for a good start.   There is no need to climb above the boul but you probabley wont see the cache from the ground (thats why its D5). This tree has very little in the way of side branches so can not be done by free climbing or off a ladder.   The cache is tied into a small none loading bearing branch easily reacable from a weight bearing side branch. It has been placed where birds will not nest.

The tree is a lonish oak with a holly bush to its south.  Its near but safely off a public foot path.
