I drive about 55 minutes to get to work most days, now, maybe I wont complain as much about my commute after seeing what these guys do to get to work. This seven minute clip follows two radio transmission tower workers as they scale a 1,768 foot guided tower to work on the mast.
To put this height into perspective, this tower is almost twice the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. In the video, filmed using a helmet cam, and you can see these guys free-climb without safety harnesses in some sections of the tower.
Do Not Try This At Home !
