This image of high climber Hallgren was taken near Knappa, Oregon at the camp of the Big Creek Logging Company. The photo was featured in an Oregonian article about him published November 23, 1921. The detailed image gives us a great view of the equipment of the climber going up the tree to top it and rig it to use as a spar pole for high-lead logging. Note the crosscut saw dangling below in detail view 2.
