A lot of you guys are going overboard.  If someone really wants to 
climb your tower, they are going to climb your tower, despite your 
best efforts.  

What we're talking about here is preventing the average kid from 
accepting a dare, or walking by and thinking "wouldn't it be cool 
if..."  As someone already said, think of it like a swimming pool.  
For a pool a 4 ft fence with openings too small to stick feet in is 
all that's required (here). You need to take REASONABLE precautions 
to prevent access.  A 4-5 ft anti-climb section provides that, 
without barbed wire, electric fences, attack dogs, etc.  A couple of 
Danger High Voltage signs wouldn't hurt either.  

How often to you read or hear about kids climbing telephone poles?
There are a lot of towers represented on Towertalk.  Has anyone ever 
had a problem when a simple anti-climb section was there?
