Wooden pole hanging from the roof of a natural cave (Borneo).

 

Those poles are used by birds-nest collectors to climb and harvest the birds-nests. The poles are formed of several segments, connected together by wood plugs.

 

The wood they use is the very strong ironwood or belian (Eusideroxylon Zawargeri).
