    Rarely but it can be done with no problem. Tower  safety climbs are used 
primarily where you have a tower ladder or climbing  bolts because the tower 
is pretty big and doesn't have a convenient way  to climb it. Rohn 25G, etc. 
OTOH is very easy to climb.

Yes, that's the safety cable trolley. All safety  climbs require one. It 
slides up and down but locks when you put some  downward weight on it.

         I'd do a google  search on tower safety climb and that should turn 
up lots of info. 
        I've never seen one on an  amateur installation. More expense for a 
genetically parsimonious hobby.
