interesting read about it
Out of interest, what do they do when they reach the top?
Oh well, the power of tinterweb
How p***ed off would you be if you got to the top and found out you had forgot your screwdriver.
I used to work as a climber with NTL and have gone many a tower as high as the one in the video. The worse thing is that the towers sway and make sure you always have a leak before your climb. My ticket has run out now so gone are the days of climbing that high. Most riggers now are working on the digital TV projects as the antenas on the top of the towers have to be changed. Helicoptors are used to ferry the big equipment to the top but you still need guys up there to fix it all down. The scary bit in the vid is that i could only see 1 lanyard being used.
bet getting down is harder....well getting down in one piece.
Yeah that is exactly what most of us thought was scary about watching that. Not the bit at the end where getting right on the top of thing is seen as 'the hard part'.
Its the only way to change the light bulb, they do it every year.
F*ck that !!!
You would want serious ££££ for going up there.
They were fine - they were wearing hard-hats
I would want a parachute and bloody great big crash mat.
"There's no quick way down."
I can think of one method!
