To me, a nut clad only in his underware climbing a tower really has

It's a good idea to have helpers on the ground when climbing, but I'd
bet that well over half the climbs on ham towers are solo.
Even at my age the idea of a solo climb does not bother me. OTOH I
*need* some one(s) on the ground as I'd be lost without go-fers. When I
go up it's usually for a number of reasons which makes it difficult to
foresee all the tools and parts that will be needed or that I can haul
up and down by myself.
