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).­
