Recreational Tree Climbing with Bob Wray
Blue Ridge Tree Climbing in Meadow of Dan, Va.
From 20 feet up in the air, the perspective on the world can be quite abit

changes, so does your attitude.” Wray is a climbing instructor who teaches near his
home off the Blue Ridge Parkway, but he doesn’t teach rock climbing or cave diving.
Bob Wray teaches tree climbing and is offering short introductions to the sport of
recreational tree climbing as part of the DATS symposium.
Register on the DATS web site and sign up for a group in the Gatewood atrium on Sat am.
