How to climb a 1,768 foot tower

Those tall transmission towers need maintenance which means that someone has to get up there to do the work. This video shows just how that's done. Full-screen view is highly recommended.

ugghh, i feel nauseous now.
I was once terrified of heights, but now, only if I am not on something "solid" (even a small 2 seater airplane is solid enough), but this makes me giddy.

When he said it was "just" another 60 feet to the top, I had to turn it off.  I felt like "I" was going to fall. *shiver" 

I went back and eventually viewed the whole thing....and he ends with "that's how you climb to the top of a transmission tower."

WRONG !  That's how YOU climb to the top of a transmission tower,  I wouldn't do it. :-)
