I can not understand the love of "tram-ming" and "gyn pole-ing" up towers
and antennas when snorkle lifts/cranes can be rented.  The crane is so
much easier, safer, quicker.
Even if u are going up above a good crane height of 70 or 80 feet (they
make 'em higher, of course), u can still use a crane to get everything
(tower sections or antennas) up at least that high.
Just stand safely belted inside the crane man-basket and let the crane
(snorkle lifte is best but a crane with basket will do ok)do the lifting.
With the crane controls in your own hands right there in the basket, u can
snug up to ur mast or tower section joint and just stick in the bolts.
As the hair colorer says, "I'm worth it...."
