I want a multi-piece ladder to carry around in my Jeep to tackle those pesky 4-5 terrain rated geocaches like this one (GC36VD9) that is twenty feet above the ground. Mudfrog has one. Anyone have something like this or one that is just as good? (Look at the photos of these crazy people on the page - only one is actually sane!) BTW, congrats to KeyResults and 2Katz for getting this one recently.

I think you've seen my telescoping extension ladder.  Nice and compact when retracted, but a bit heavy.  Not the sturdiest feeling when I'm towards the top of it either.

THIS ONE looks interesting!

Bert, Lone Wolf brand Climbing Sticks. Ain't cheap, but light and work great for me and my BFF. ;) A set of 4 stacks sweet and sling carries no problem. Weight 7 lbs. good for 25 foot tree. Add another section or two if you want to go higher.
Why am I all sweatty and late? Umm...

I do it like the natives, so I'm no help. Hell, I don't even know how long a 12-foot kayak is, and they don't let me use the sharp-pointed scissors yet.

The climbing sticks worked great. I was VERY impressed!!!

We tried out my birthday ladder today for the first time on this cache:  GC295DY  I held the bottom and my Bride went up for the grab!

"I held the bottom and my Bride went up for the grab! "

 

Sounds like something a brand new parent would say...or, perhaps an Mr. and Mrs Zoo worker. :)
