Vertigo-Inducing Tower Climb

I saw this video posted on a few different websites & it's not for the acrophobic.

Just watching this made my palms sweat & my heart rate go up! Let's just say I wouldn't volunteer to be 1000's of feet in the air w/ no stable surface beneath me.

This kind of work is a modern equivalent of the construction workers on the girders in old photographs.

Toward the end when he says "This is the tricky part," @ 6:45 is definitely an understatement.

HOLY SHIT!!! Are these guys crazy? That is the most frightening vid I've seen for a long time - I'm not a climber and never will be after seeing this - how does one contain one's fear at these heights with no safety lines or plans?
