Looking around the typical hamfest, and figuring at least some of those 
guys you see waddling around are going to cimb a tower on occasion, this 
becomes a scary thought. :)

The standard pole climbing joke when I worked for Ma Bell was the pain 
from a pole fall was considered inconsequential compared to the pain of 
crawling all the way to the truck and back to retrieve the hard hat you 
were supposed to be wearing before the first line supervisor arrived to 
do his "accident investigation".
