If you think your job is tough, try having to climbing over 1,700 feet just to start the work day.
Whenever something happens or needs maintenance on a transmission tower, these guys have to make the climb….
And even if your the least bit afraid of heights, the video at the end of this article almost too terrifying to watch.
That tiny skinny one on the left is what these guy’s will be climbing….. yeah.
Both workers take an elevator ride up to about 1,600 feet, and from there the climb begins
Once the top is reached, he has to go on the outside to make the secondary climb
He makes the climb harness free…. only stopping at certain points to clip in and rest
Still a long way to go
Here’s the electrical box that powers the light
Those barbed looking flowers are used to attract electrical charges in the air
They then reach the base of the antenna… from there it’s another 60 foot climb.
And up they go again
Finally…. they made it
Once at the top, the two workers stand on the tiny platform to change the light
Check out the entire climb
This one is pretty intense too!
Now that’s one job I could never do… Whoa! Make sure to give this a share on Facebook before you go, and let us know what you think about this video in the comment section below.
