Amazing 1700ft transmission tower climb!

This is a first-person, POV video of an electrician climbing to the top of a 1768-foot broadcast transmission tower.

Amazingly, the climber doesn't have a harness, though occasionally he clamps himself onto any odd piece of the tower that will hold him. Doesn't look like he has a parachute attached to his back either. No wonder this is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States.
