    Cook pay range varies from 18-40+ an hour depending on location, experience, and position each climber climbs are a different rate but realistically it takes roughly 2 hrs.

    I stand corrected he had to clip off every 4 ft so it would prob be closer to 2.5-3 hrs for the climb.

    If my choices were work (and climb that tower) or not work at all as long as there is a dumpster out back of McDonalds I’ll be OK. The only way I would climb that would be to build a 1490 foot hill with the tower in the middle. Then I would climb the last 10 feet. There isn’t enough money on earth to get me to climb that.

    I would love to have a job like this as long as it kept me busy enough to make a living at it.
    I have always loved heights.

      I love this kind of work. Been in for about 4 yrs now. http://Www.wirelessestimater.com for all levels of work in out industry. Nothing better to get paid awesome money and see Sunrise’s and sunsets that high up. Most pro le never even see a view like that in their life unless they r in a plane……best rush in the world to me… Our balls make ur calls

    How do you get into a job like that?. Where do you go to fill out a app. I would climb that, it would be a great job to have.

    I thinks the video is awesome. I have climbed 350 ft on a vacuum tower in a refinary in Arkansas,so I have experience in a 100% fall protection policy. There is no other job I could thinkof more in the world I would llike to have as climbing these tall towers I don’thave much experience, but does any body know where or how I could get a job climbing towers?

    I work on those in the Houston Texas area. We do all aspects of broadcast maintenance and repairs, including antenna installs, strobe system replacement, paint, etc. I wouldn’t mind getting some drone footage like that while we’re working, lol. @Bruce Fayter, I’ve been doing it for 22 years, and I stay working year round.
