Just thought I would share this video I found it actually made me sick just watching this guy climb. The video itself is kind of freaky. haha

Now thats an ascension moment literally. lol

Yes that made me queasy too. I'm deathly afraid of heights. Must take a calm person to climb like that.

Wonder how do you end up with a career such as that? Are you a climber and then you learn the trade of working on the antenna tower? Or is it the reverse?

Not sure, but I roof and 2-3 stories is high enough for me. That guy isnt even tied off. He has to free climb most of the top. Its just crazy. haha

Tower Climbers have more fatalities per 100,000 workers, than any other job in the U.S. according to O.S.H.A.

F-THAT!! These guys must have a death wish and balls the size of Buffalo lol. They put a lot of faith in one little bolt. Not me, If I had a bear chasing me I think I would rather just fight the bear.
