The video cut out before they did anything, but I was just imagining 2 guys climing all that way and risking their life just to change a light bulb or something.What did they go up for? I can imagine working up there is a lot harder than climbing up there. Also, the trip down is probably more difficult as well. It would probably be safer if they dangled from a helicopter and grabbed onto the top of the tower.
The hardest part of base jumping a tower is missing all the wires, lol.As far as the trip down, if I was doing that job I would invest in a good parachute and when it was all said and done I would just take a dive off the tower and pull the cord once I was a safe distance away. They probably have rules against that or something though.
That is among the most messed-up things Ive ever seen; made my knees feel funny, lol.I've climbed them all. To me the scariest is the monopole. Those things are flimsy! When you get half way up a monopole and look down and the bottom of the tower is moving one direction, the middle another direction and you're at the top moving the same or another direction than the bottom of the tower now, that's just freaky. These towers will "wiggle" in a S type motion when the wind picks up.
