I'll wait in the truck until they find a way to lower the working point tower to no higher than 6'-6 AFF.

Aughhh!!

AGREED !!!! (Mind you,it will be a cold day in Hell before I get in one of those)

Better still, I was thinking the Pilots ought pay closer attention to whats around them.

$150K Per climb- NO way !

Everyone has a 'price' - not in this situation. (at least not me)

Thanx for the link.

With them alternating between climbing and belaying off, the fall would just be painful, probably not deadly but you still need to climb a third of a mile straight up. That requires that you be in better shape that I am in wink

What is the base altitude. From my experiences in the Tetons and the Rockies I can say, if you get over a few thousand feet above sea level, air starts be be hard to come by. Up around 9000' they just don't have much.

I too was thinking of a parachute to go home at the end of the day, but then you've just got 1 more thing strapped to your back (plus a reserve) to climb up there with.

Oh, Well; such is the unintended cost of "wireless" communication.
Better them that me...any day of the week.
