Topband: 160m Sloping Vertical Antenna?

Trying to figure out how to best utilize my 106' tower for 160m.  The tower sits on a small hill so the downside of the tower is sloping.  If I hang a wire off the top, I can bring the other end to the ground and feed it at the bottom. I can ran numerous radials from there.  

This arrangement can accommodate a quarter wave length.  The angle of the tower would be about 20 degrees. 

Any objections to this plan?  Open to other ideas.  

Thanks in advance and happy holidays!
