I remember as a second year apprentice being asked if I wanted to go change a bulb out on plant. I said yep. Turned out to be about 130 meters up the side of the stack (Chimney) at work... Was a great view, but I dont like heights, even when strapped into a harness and lifted to the top....

I never volunteer

Ive seen this before, gives you vertigo just watching the video

My older brother runs a lightning and power protection company and had to work on the lightning rod on the top of centre point tower, the photos made me feel ill.

The highest I went was 360 feet (110m) when working for B&R Antenna and Tower Service many years ago. It was the new sheriff dispatch tower. Was fun, but not something I would want to do anymore. :)

Do it in a heart beat...after 100', your going to go splat anyhow. Used to climb trees for a living, miss the heights, don't miss the work.
