I was watching the start thinking 'OK, it's a ladder in a cage, I could do that' and then came 'now they need to climb outside' :eek
At the end where he's standing on the very top you can see he's let go completely for a second to get the clip on :jaw-dropping

Oh man thats scary!:jaw-dropping

Years ago offshore i used to climb the derrick regular and use the geronimo line to get back down and it didnt bother me but i couldnt do it now. Must be an age thing maybe, just cant handle heights at all now.

I think i would just freeze on that and maybe even start crying:lol

Im fine with heights..but that..THAT is something else :eek

Im known at work for scaling the OUTSIDE of 6/7 storey scaffolds...Or casualy walking up roofs, the last being a 5 storey house (all without a harness, i cant afford one of them :hihi )

But with that...All i would be thinking about is...if i slip, with no harness, its a long way to contemplate death before it happens!

Can you imagine how much that tower would sway even if it was just a little bit windy?!

Bloody crazy if you ask me but someone has to do it!

Makes you wonder why they can't have the light becon on a pulley system so they just pull it down, replace the bulb and hoist it back up again.

thats not high only joking at least he had a rope just in case its a long way to bounce.
Just think ive left that special tool in the van and have to go all the way down again.
Height wise thats a tad too high for me i think

I'm suprised he can move his legs to climb with the pair of massive balls he got in his trousers. :cool
