Stairway to Heaven: Climbing a 1786 ft Tower

"The commute of one worker, 1786 ft straight up. Don't watch this if you are afraid of heights!"

http://www.flixxy.com/tower-climbing.htm (WFS)

An example of how fitness can be extremely useful in one's profession. Much respect goes out to these workers, steel workers, SAR, military, etc. who perform these and similar tasks regularly!

Crazy! No-handed at the top standing on a 12" square platform, 30lbs tool bag hanging while he grabs and attaches his carabiner...

I'm okay with heights but that still gave me that weird feeling in my gut and tingling hands

All that to change a lightbulb?

Wow, that was really awesome. I sure hope those guys get paid a good salary, because they definitely deserve it. I have serious acrophobia so I could never do that.

Is that USA? Or somewhere else?
