John Jay : Am I the only one that has sweaty palms just from watching this?

5MadMovieMakers : That was awesome to watch, I didn't know they worked at night

jao hernandez : These guys look like they are sitting on a chair they are actually sitting on their giant tungsten balls.

Stevey Irwin : hahaha 2.5 people out of 100? more like 1 out of a million.

Omi Gaming : FUCK THATSHIT!!!!

chris atkins : Been a member of the club since 1980....the coolest climb I had was on a 500 ft tower in the mountains of Puerto Rico. Low clouds moved in so I had the experience of "Tower heaven" or as I call it, my :jack n the bean stalk" experience. Climbing through the clouds into the sun is a beautiful experience. THANKS FOR ALL OF THE MEMORIES

Antler Assassins TV- Bowhunting Television : Thought I was a pretty tough guy. Watched this video. Now feel like a complete pu$$y

phuturephunk : In a way, I think it'd be easier to do this at night because you aren't really reminded just how friggen high you are off the ground. Wow.

speakebreathe : How could you continue to do that job after seeing one collapse? I would quit.

angela prestwood : i wouldn't do this job for a million dollars an hour

Ace Lightning : I'm not afraid of heights. I worked in AM radio for a while - the towers weren't nearly that tall, but they still needed relamping every so often. I'm no longer strong enough to haul my ass up the tower, but I still visit every tall building I can find. The tallest I've been to so far is the CN Tower in Toronto (which *is* a broadcasting tower), followed by the new One World Trade building in NYC. I haven't been to any of the big ones in Asia, and of course the ultimate would be Burj Khalifa in Dubai. But I'll take the elevator, thankyouverymuch!

ynotnilknarf39 : Fred Dibnah did this type of thing 40 years ago and no hard hat, no harness, smoking a woodbine and carry his balls of steel.lol

Storms and Saugeye : 300is my max. And I learned quite a bit about what makes me nervous. This coming from a guy who was snoozing during mortar attacks and didn't mind lighting up the occasional IED with a 50 cal... Dunno why, but if I'm jumping from a plane I'm fine. If I'm at the top of a mountain I'm fine. But my god do I get the shakes when I climb a big ole exposed tower with nothing around me but the air.

Blue Sifer : something for the feminists, and #wagegap 6:08

loddicc : I used up a value pack of Charmin just watching this.

mightConsiderThis : is it not possible to design these to be easier and safer to climb?

Mutleytech : When my friend and I decided to climb a 450 ft antenna on Queen Anne Hill he stiffened up with fear and had a death grip. I could not pry his fingers loose. Went down and had to get the fire dept. to come rescue. Fun times!

Grant Walker : Some facts about the tower climbing profession > There are now more than 290,000 tower sites nationwide, up from 5,000 in 1990. There are more than 10,000 workers in the tower profession, not all of whom are climbers. While most tower contractors and subcontractors practice standard construction safety standards for climbing, rigging and constructing, there's no industry safety standard required by law. OSHA has no authority to regulate safety standards on these companies, and they are not required to report accidents or deaths to OSHA. There are no Unions representing workers in the tower climbing business. There are approximately 10 deaths of climbers per year, which is 10 times more than that of construction workers. Climbers are most often required to work in very cold and windy conditions. Climbers range in age from 18 to 55 years. Hourly wages can range from as little as $10 to as much as $38 per hour, depending on experience and certified training. Average hourly rate ranges from $16 to $18 per hour. Climbers work between 40 to 60 hours a week and can earn upwards of $75,000 a year. Climbers with electronics and radio transmission installation and repair experience generally earn the most money. Strangely enough, those people who are used to extreme and dangerous heights, such as skydivers, mountain climbers, lumberjacks, iron workers and steeple chase workers, are seldom cut out for tower climbing. Tower climbing is a fearsome job cut out for only a select few.

Slugg0matic : Not a chance in hell. Someone would just have to watch Dr. Phil on the internet. Balls of steel you guys. My hat's off to you.

Keith Spencer : There isn't enough money in the world for me to do this job! You guys/gals are bad A$$!

David : I can't even watch video's like this. My heart rate triples and my asshole clinches so tight I sprain it.

John Basil : I'm certain the body weight of each one of these men is 96% balls. I nearly lost my grip and fell watching this, and I'm in bed! Crazy stuff

murrayJoe : I'd love to know what the investigation into why it fell revealed, was itice, high winds, bolt failure?

Peter Shaw : I somehow think that hard hat would be useless

Richard Wolfe : There's crab fishermen, these guys, then everyone else. Know what I'm sayin'?

TheNoisePolluter : Why can't they just helicopter somebody into the top, like they do with high-voltage powerlines???

Sal C : These guys have cold eyes. Thousand yard stare.

New American : Man why hasn't anyone made a movie about this lifestyle, would be such a cool blockbuster picture if they make it right....

jitsu222 : I think about this. What about the guys who have to build those things. There hanging off of them while helicopters with giant sections of antenna are hovering above them. That's crazy.

Posi P : You guy are nuts, Thank you for doing a job only a few are willing to do.

Mario Hinsche : Equal Pay , yeah baby this compares to working at the coffee shop or at the food store , certainly equal pay , LOFL , NOT , seriously

TheDaveyht3 : I was going to get a job for Time Warner Cable doing this but the starting pay was around $15.00 an hour I would need at least $24.00 an hour.

ugsisr : This is a great video to give people an idea of what tower work is like. I worked in Technical Enforcement work for 34 years and climbed many towers to install antennas and other devices. My personal tallest was 1,235 feet on what started out a calm day but when descending the wind picked up and changed everything. I give the Men and Women who do this work day in and day out a huge amount a credit. Thanks again for a great video..

alphasxsignal : Bolts get old and can break with no warning.

dustin miller : sigh just one more club in my lifetime that I will never become

Waveluth : For 25 years I had no fear of heights and I was definitely a member of that club. I used to love the feeling of being able to go up as high as possible and some days have the cloud level below me. However, something changed in my life. Unrelated to my job I received a TBI ( traumatic brain injury) by getting hit by a car. I was not driving btw. Anyway, it took 18 months of therapy to heal the broken back and broken neck and several other broken bones and tears. I was a complete mess and lost several years of memories that lead to the loss of many friends. One of the things that occurred as a result of the injury to my brain stem was a complete and utter fear of heights. I just got Vertigo and nauseous from watching the clips of the guys on that tower. How IRONIC is that ? To go from one extreme to the other. In my present state I can say without reservation that I DO NOT MISS the heights and could not do it if my life depended on it now. Weird huh??? The Brain is an amazing machine but when you hurt it, the brain fights back in some very strange and frightening ways. Oh well , that was probably boring but I figured I’d put my two cents in. Stay safe guys ( and Gals) ( I knew a few gals that could climb with the best of us) Anyways PEACE ✌🏻🙏🏻✌🏻🇺🇸

MrMagee78 : I rather be up their at night this way you cant even see how high up you are ;)

Savage Sooner : Are they all getting paid millions?? No!? They should be doing this crazy job...

Jeremy Childrey : Whoop to all my brothers and sisters climbing be safe and God Bless!

Abe S. : Job equality, they still get paid more than the secretary. misogynists !!!

EricH1983 : 6:08 She safe at her desk BUT she's upset about the gender pay gap, why should she earn only 77% of those guys who climb the towers, damn patriarchal bastards..

Rusty James : Would you not put a parachute on ya?

KingOfTheShill : Jaygan is adorable

Ga Fin : That chick is hot! She has the Danica Patrick look.

Mike K : Why not go up in a helicopter hang down and change the bulb????

Dingus E. Dow : If you're not afraid of heights, this type of job takes a week to get used to....

Wayne Wintermute : Done my share of climbing painting water towers and bridge painting and I got no problems with the climbing part but that last 100' part snapping off ! I think that would end it for me!!

Chummy : Go change the lightbulb on top of the antenna

THE ATOMIC CLAP : I really look up to you high climbers lol!

Sweety Pie : You could not pay me enough money to go up there. Much respect to you all. Be safe.
