Below are a series of pictures and video cllips taken by Jake Milarch and Bo Burke from the top of the giant sequoia that was climbed by over 16 people using an “elevator” technique that allowed one person to be raised to the top of the tree by the counterweight of someone else being lowered from the top of the tree.
Jake and Bo were 200 feet up in the top of this giant sequoia for several hours assisting many to get to the top of such an amazing tree for the first time in their life. Kudos to Jake, Bo and Damien Carre at the base of the tree for helping so many of us “elevate” to the top.

This is just a sampling of the folks who rose to the top of a 200 foot high giant sequoia. What a fantastic effort on the part of all those who supported getting people to the top of a giant sequoia for the first, and perhaps only, time in their lives! It was truly an amazing experience!
