I'm not so sure I would that. No fall arrest/climbing system is infallible.
No matter how careful I am on the tower, the risk of falling always exists,
whether from 3', 10', or 70', it still exists.
Not all falls are fatal; some are survivable. I wouldn't put up anything at
the base (fall zone) of my tower that might reduce my chances of surviving a
fall or cause additional injury.
