This is a good idea. I usually like to climb to 25 feet so I cut a string to 24 foot and tie it to my bow and to my climber rail. once I feel the weight of the bow on the climber I know I'm high enough.

I also took an old pickup truck window rifle rack and cut it down to fit the seat back of my stand. I bungee the rifle in the rack and attach my pack to the rope to be hauled up. A few times, I've climbed up to where the pack was dangling 10-15 feet off the ground before I stopped climbing. Sometimes you just have to get way up in a pine to see down into a cutover.
