Tower Maintenance

The video that was here has been pulled because of employment concerns for the climber featured. Read more about it at The Online Engineer.

This helmet-cam video is not for anyone with an extreme fear of heights. Engineers climb a 1,768 foot broadcast tower. In my previous career in radio, I used to watch guys do this, but could never understand their bravery, except for that one guy who drank a pint of whiskey to get up the nerve. -via Metafilter

You know what else would make a good YouTube video?

"How Many Large Men Would It Take To Make Doof Climb This Tower?"

I think it would take at least 6.

Did you notice at the top when getting ready to hook the caribener up he had no hands touching the tower? This is when the second climber gets up there near him. Can you image a mis-communication? I have only climbed 250 feet and I kissed the ground when I was safely off of the tower. Too old now! Crank ups baby!
