Sock line

The crane is there to hold the sock line off the power line. If you look below the "V" of the cable you will see a power line running under the sock line. That is common practice for crossing roads, power lines, etc. There is a big pulley attached to the crane called a traveler. The pilot sets the sock line in the traveler as the wire is being pulled.
