Yes I could and I have done it. Used to maintain the lights on several towers that were nearly that tall. 1500 feet. My father also did tower work. That's how I learned plus I used his climbing gear.
It's scary but surreal to be up so high supported by so little. I can't do it anymore but would love to try.

I could feel myself getting clammy just watching. There are a bunch of guys that do this on phone installations. They build the towers ground up...not sure if it's the same height, but insane none the less
I just pooped my pants.

It would take a very finely honed cocktail of drugs for me to complete that
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

I spent over an hr. telling my self over & over that this an irrational fear, my coworkers asked if they should call the fire dept. to get me down, I replied, NOOOOOOOOOOOO. I was an officer in my local fire an hr. away. the fire svce. is a small community!

Needles to say, I talked my self out of my irrational fear, hopped down, grabbed a bunch of shingles & finished the roof!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not usually scared of hights, but I wouldn't even consider that as a career choice.

I would rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

two story or single? i used to have a fear of heights but i actually got over it by falling off a 20 foot wall :lol3: one of the last jobs i was on at that job was the equivalent of a four story building (it was a house) and i had to form and pour the chimneys which were out on the very edge of the structure. i got pretty used to hanging off the side of the building tethered off to rebar to strip or build the forms.

still don't think i could go THAT high though.
