Whoever designed those climbing pegs to slide your safety hook needs to go back to the drawing board. I couldn't do this even at gunpoint. The only way I could even come close to doing that job is with a freaking parachute onThis message has been edited. Last edited by: jsbcody,
That is a scarey climb right there. No way, no how. I will just stay down on earth thank you.. . You can hear cows mooing down below.
Yeah, there's not enough money on planet Earth to get me to go up there. Nope nope nope. I understand the gravity of the situation all too well.

I've done that.
We had to hang an antenna on the underside of a platform WAAAAAAYYYY up in the air (about 2000ft).
I had to clip my harness off to the platform, then dangle underneath holding this antenna while we bolted it on.
Don't wanna do it again lol.
This is where my signature goes.
After 75 feet or so does it matter anymore.

Its not the fall that is the issue, but the sudden stop is

Dang tower gets skinnier as you go up. This is a job for a elevator and a robot.

Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.
Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

In sections, with subsequent sections lowered from helicopters and bolted on by riggers like the guy in the video.
There's a video of an antenna installation atop a local station's tower that way. If I think of it, I'll see if I can find it tomorrow.
Used to be heights didn't much bother me. Now? Uh uh. Nope.

Would it be easier for the worker to be delivered to the top via helicopter (like the aerial line workers are)?
Just thinking about fatigue related mistakes or tool management.

You can hear the pulsing EM rad. The beacon lighting. My brother used to do this shit. Still runs a crew. We're told he doesn't climb anymore. It takes a special kind of crazy. Which he is.
I do believe I would be less afraid with the cloud deck below.
I see what you did there.
All your 10mm are belong to us

I got vertigo just watching the video. The cloud deck didn't help me. I have no idea how people manage to do that.
These go to eleven.
