Climb a tower with no belt or safety devices like harness   the only easy JOB  
is to  break things  like:

YOUR HEAD, YOUR ARMS, YOUR LEGS and other easy to break parts.

Worst in a temporary tower

heard about a tower-climbing misfortune of his. On one occasion he 
climbed his 30+ ft tower without a belt because it was such a quick and 
easy job he had to do up there. Unfortunately, forgetting that this time 
he was not wearing a belt, he let go. He is very thankful that he landed 
on the grass rather than on the concrete, and no significant injuries 
were suffered..
