Climbing is not  recommended...

Cut the guys  on one leg - have someone hold on to the top one to stabilize 
it. Cut another  top one. Cut the remaining top one. Keep cutting until 
something lets go and  then stand back. The tower will be constrained by the 
remaining  guys as it's falling so the fall radius will be about 30-40 feet or  
approximately 1/3 of the height. The best and easiest thing to use is a 4"  
grinder with a thin (1/8") cutting blade on it. Will cut EHS in 3-4  seconds. 
    And of course I don't have to tell you to be  careful.
