I would be willing to bet that the ladder has cable hooks on it.

All the phone guys around here lean the ladders against the phone lines, the ladder has hooks so it can not slip.

Of course that does not mean I would try what was shown in the picture.

Actually Bob,
That doesn't sound too far-fetched about the cable hooks.
However, you'd sort of be hoping that the cable messenger wire was of very good quality and strength.
I have to agree though:

Amen to that, there are enough ways to get yourself injured at work, without tempting fate with doing silly things like this.

"It looks dangerous at first glance but isn't he tied off to the top conductor with a safety cable?"

Do I sense a tone of jest in that statement?
Well as long as the safety cable is a heavy steel (conductive) cable right? [Linked Image]

Yeah, that's the cable. It comes packaged with a wabbit's foot for extra safety.
