Good point, Alan.
I would be interested to see what answers arrive.
The first thing that came to mind was a very small electric fence ;-)
but of course that isn't a good answer.
(I bet it *would* work, though. ;-)
Rohn makes (made?) an anti-climb kit as well, but as I recall,
it isn't cheap.
Perhaps chicken wire wrapped around up to the 8 or 10' level?
Perhaps a crude plywood box built around the bottom?
I'm fortunate not to have a 'neighborhood kids' problem where
I live, and my own children DO know better (yes, really), but
I've caught some guests' kids succumbing to the temptation,
thankfully only a few feet off the ground.
