That tower is ok i guess.

 

Seen that vid somewhere before, We never free climb, most of our towers are either square or triangular lattice type, 2 to 400 FT the taller ones have guys as well, it is the 150 ft pole masts I hated, all down know replaced by lattice type, having to erect your climbers as you go was no fun.

Wife says I am to old for it as well 70 something last March, still enjoy it & will keep on till I cant same as the flying.

Crazy bastard. That man has balls of steel. Must know that route pretty well. One wrong hold or one breaks off and you're done!

Dan Osman died November 23, 1998 at the age of 35 after his rope failed while performing a "controlled free-fall" jump from the Leaning Tower rock formation in Yosemite National Park.

 

Stay in school kids.
