Bold and Pucker factor yes, no question.

No Fear..I don't think so.  Notice 2 things: Left hand firmly grabbing trusted 
steel mast and the fact that the angle iron bar is long enough that Jeff could 
be comfortably adjusting the assembly with 2 hands while strapped onto the 
boom, but isn't.  

I am not suggesting that he should.  Jeff looks to me like a talented and smart 
tower climber to not be overcome with fear but with respect for it.  Nice work 

My technique is alot less "pucker factor".  Put up a gin pole and take the 
antenna off of the mast, swinging freely on the rope.  Swing the antenna closer 
to the mast and throw a temporary rope around the element at the mast to 
element point.  Make adjustment, swing back.

The gin pole assembly and the angle iron assembly are about a push for time.  
No pucker factor required on the gin pole method.  Enjoy!
