Abstract Eine junge Frau aus der Siedlung Tuo auf Fenualoa erklettert im Buschland mit Hilfe eines aus einem Lianenstengel verknoteten Kletterstrickes einen Baum und erntet mit einem Pflücker Baumfrüchte. Dann gleitet sie hinunter.
A woman and her daughter go into the bushland north of Tuo on Fenualoa (Ngasinue). The young woman lays a "climbing rope" from a liana stem of some length and fastens it with knots. Then she climbs up a tree by alternately reaching up its trunk and drawing and stretching her legs held by the climbing rope accordingly. She gathers the fruit of the tree with a picker and then slides down the trunk using the climbing rope, grasping the trunk alternately with her hands as she goes.
