Pardon my stupidity, but what's the difference between a climber and a normal tree stand? I'm guessing the climbers are the ones you have to "walk" up the tree with your shoes wedged on the foot base??? if so,,, HECK NO FOR TATOR! Those things would scare the CRAP out of me. As far as other tree stands, they scare me enough with all the movement they have. I'll stick to my ladders thank you very much!
