[TowerTalk] Plumbing a tapered pole?

Here's a bit of an unusual question that probably has a simple answer.

How does one properly plumb a continuously tapering pole, like a flag pole?

A plumb bob hung from the top won't easily work, unless you look for equal
deflections on several points around the circumference of the
pole.....very difficult to manage.

Obviously, a spirit level is out too.

Any ideas?
