Whats the point of the hard hat? protect you from falling bird shit?

looks like a non pegged pole. did you use spiked boots, how are they?



and unforgiven.. i bet if the price was right you'd do it... lets just say, there was a suitcase full of cash on top of that pole. you wouldn't leave it there.
is it the height, or the high voltage?

How about this climb?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k4Xk1mEwmI

I've been up some towers and pegged poles up to about 60ft. (and mounted 2' dishes on them)
poles are a lot scarier than towers.. a tower is like a ladder.
but its only really scary the first time.


edit: damn it alex.. you beat me to it. as soon as i click submit it's already there

I always thought this one was a gut-wrencher.
It is. ...and I assume the video is an active climb that I've seen before. Some of those things give me the heebie jeebies just looking at it remotely.

i'd walk the fawk away and not give 1 shit. i hate heights, pole or tower "ladder", doesn't matter. i have trouble being on a ladder that's over 8feet and i start getting nervous.

i've had too many dreams where i am falling, hit the ground, die and NOT wake up to do anything remotely high up.

Nerves of steel!!:beer Big brass testyballs too!
Very cool. Climbing back down would suck, a parachute would be a great way to get down.Wouldn't hurt as a safety device either.
