I know you are right, but I have seen tower climbing professionals who
climb a tower with no safety line connected at all, and only hook up
when they are in place ready to work.
If the professionals are so lacking in concern, what hope is there for
us amateurs? I guess after you climb a few hundred towers with no
accidents, you become immortal.
My rule is to always have two connections to the tower: Either my
safety line plus one hand, or two safety lines. I never trust only one
safety connection, ever.
