Treetop Viewpoints

This is the 2nd time ive been standing in a large tree that has a viewpoint icon. I hear the eagle flying around and i see the icon about 10 meters above my head yet I cant seem to climb any higher. Am i just dumb or is there a trick to this?

Damn I am dumb. it took me like 10 minutes to figure out you had to do some swinging from branches instead of just climbing.

You're not dumb dude, when I first played, it took me about 15 minutes and multiple deaths from jumping off the tree before I understood where and how I was supposed to get to the top.

I started playing the game last week and the first time I tried to climb one I killed myself, lol. It's definitely finesse.

Not complex however messing up on the first try is likely. On a side note, the trend of killing myself when going to do a Leap of Faith continues for the 5th game running.

I hate that I can never usually see the hay bale when you up the tree because of leaves n branches, I usually climb back down, I've died to many times.

^ this. drives me crazy. at one point i developed a system where i would find the hay bale BEFORE climbing the tree, then place a custom marker on the map on its relative location, so i could see which direction i needed to face when trying to perform a leap of faith. but half the time that didn't work either, so i gave up.

swinging?! Geebus. I must be dumb for not noticing that before. I've been trying to jump from one fork over to the other (before and after the apparent swinging section) with a very minimal success rate. Ugh.
