I have it on good authority that Andrew Joslin can still Tarzan very well.

One of things that surprised me the most about the sequoias is just how soft and crumbly their bark is. While it looks like it would be easy to climb on, it really is too weak to hold a man's weight. Also if you try to burn a piece of it, you'll see the resin boil out of it, until you are finally left with a sort of black, carbonized sponge.
