How tall was Zacchaeus in the Bible?

Although not a biblical scholar myself, I have spent a significant amount of time on the study of Luke-Acts. A Lukan story that many Christian readers are familiar with is that of Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10), a rich chief tax-collector who is described as being “short in stature” (19:3).

“Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.

Is it hard to climb a sycamore tree?

Sycamores are great to climb as long as you don't have any reaction to the bark (the whitish dust deposit), some people do. If you're not scratching into the cambium layer you aren't hurting the tree, a cambium saver should be used and will successfully protect the tree from rope damage.
