At that height you would never have to climb-just reach up and work on the
antennas  big <G>
(couldn't resist guys)
Seriously though, sounds like an awful big windload factor with 3 large
antennas on that-not sure of factory specs but sounds like abt 26-30 sq.
feet. Would have to be a pretty big tower to handle that load in your
particular wind area.
Sounds like you may be better off putting up a guyed tower, if you want any
kind of engineering factor built in.
Just my .02 worth. Godd luck,
