Default Antennae climb

Sorry if this has already been posted.
I've worked at heights before and it doesn't really bother me(not this high though). Don't know if its the camera shake, the emptiness around the climber, or what, but this video really made me nervous!

YouTube - World's Scariest Job

Kept head bobbing and moving my feet while watching it.......weird

Free climb is the preference? Couldn't do it.

Ive never done it but that would be awesome to climb the BASE jump off of it. That would have to be one hell of a rush.

I'm curious why they wouldn't base jump off rather than climb back down? Figure you would get down a whole lot faster and probably just as dangerous as climbing down.

Anyhow, looks like one of the best jobs EVAR!

I could have turned a lump of coal into a diamond with the pucker factor I had watching this vid.
