Would you climb THIS tower?

Some of you out there can climb a tower 100-200 feet up, but what about going up 1,768 feet on a TV tower?

Just a warning, watching this video made my palms sweat, my feet sweat, my sweat was sweating, my body tensed up, and I'm sure my blood pressure skyrocketed.

I'm pretty sure that, in addition to the tool bag, he had to haul his BIG BRASS BALLS up to the top.


  1. What a great video. Thanks for the link!

  2. At several points I had stopped breathing and caught my heart taking a few extra beats. You could not pay me enough to do this type of work!!

  3. Too bad the OnLineEngineering group decided to be so shelfish with their video. Thanks for letting me see it once anyway. Wish i had saved it. Climbed telephone poles for thirty years but don't think I could do this.
