Be amazed at the speed competitive pole climbers scale the 80ft high poles (supported by AUS Ltd).
Four Pole Climbing Facts
- Pole climbing is a race to see who can climb an 80ft pole in the fastest time. The timer starts by a pressure pad at the bottom and stops when the climber hits a button at the top
- Many of the climbers are Arborists but anyone that is physically fit is able to climb
- The World Record for climbing 80ft stands at 9.07 seconds held by Grant Gallier of the UK
- The oldest climber that we know of in this country is an 80-year-old who can climb the poles in 30 seconds. He does this for the charity Marie Curie and has raised over £40,000 in 10 years
