Try climbing every day to your worksite. 1600 feet in the air.

Yeah. I think I'd shit myself before I got to the top of that.

Yeeeaaahhh...and by that I mean no fucking way. There was one place where the dude didn't seem sure what to grab on to...and no safety lines...and those pegs he's using to climb the last section...just fuck no.

That job would have to pay close to 7 figures. Right?

I wouldn't go up there for 10million.

I left for 2 damn years and I know this is a repost. But I'd do the job. As long as I'm connected to the ground I'm ok.

We used to climb them for fun. The worst part is that once you get to the top it's caked with slippery, stinky bird shit.

I couldn't imagine hauling my desk all the way up there. This thing is huge.

And man is it windy up there. Papers would fly everywhere.

A lot of the time it's lightbulb replacement so airplanes don't fly into the towers. I have a friend who used to do that stuff.

My next door neighbor was an electrician who took a header off a 180 tower. His climbing partner heard him say "Oh Fuc*" and looked up in time to see him miss hooking up his safety line and go over backwards. He was still alive when his partner got to the ground but didn't last until the ambulance got there.
