OMG.
I felt sick watching that.
I would give up half way. Been to the top of a wind turbine on open sea, and that was scary, even when it was only 320 feet.

That is about the craziest shit I've ever seen. I just about peed myself about halfway through. I'm amazed those guys were able to maneuver around so nimbly considering they must have the largest balls on any human being ever.

I chuckled when they were talking about lightning and the announcer says "there's no quick way down". I beg to differ. It's just not one you want to use.

I've also heard that they can only work on the tower for about 30 minutes at a time because their bodies begin to heat up from all the RF energy they are absorbing.

These guys make me feel like a 6-year old girl, and I used to skydive too.

WOw, watched it twice. Unbelievable. Had no idea they climbed stuff like that without being tied in. CRAZY! Now I want to see the "heading back down" video.

I searched the video out on Youtube, and Oh My God! Whatever they pay those guys, it's not enough. I'd wear a base jumpers parachute just to avoid climbing back down. These dudes are just friggin' CRAZY!!
