Build a Bushcraft Ladder in under 15 minutes!

Why would a bushcraft ladder be a good idea?  Lots of reasons actually…

  • Reach wild edibles like fruits, nuts, etc that are high in trees.
  • Reach birds nests for eggs
  • Get a height advantage for a look out
  • Cross a small crevasse
  • Use the structure as part of a bushcraft shelter
  • Use as a makeshift stretcher
  • And probably many more creative ideas!

Using the technique of tourniquet lashings, I’ll show you how to put one of these up in no time.  I put a 3 rung ladder together in 7 minutes.  You could double that in 15 minutes and be able to reach heights of 10-15 feet!
