Take a few minutes to look at this video by cinematographer Greg Parker but make sure you view it full screen so you can see all the detail!
For blog readers outside of New Zealand, Greg's video was shot in the Waitakere Ranges less than one hours drive from downtown Auckland. It features Auckland climbers Drew Bristow and Johno Smith tackling a mid-sized kauri - you will see other kauri in the background shots taken from in the tree.
This is the best tree climbing video we have featured on this blog and shows just how lucky we are to be living in New Zealand.
