Friday Fun: Tower Climbing

It’s Friday, what a great day to get high! No, not that kind of getting high, Lincecum. High as in climbing a transmission tower.

If you’re terrified of heights, then I suggest you grab a towel and cover your computer keyboard before pressing play. Mainly because you will, I repeat you will, loose your lunch/breakfast/fourth meal.

Imagine the Sears Tower in Chicago. Now imagine a radio tower taller than the Sears Tower. Now imagine a small sailboat with a mummy, Fran Drescher and the Little Ceasars guy in it flying through the air. That last image has nothing to do with this post, I just figured while I had you imagining things, I’d run with it.

A worker and his partner climbed this 1768 ft. tower with a helmet cam, and yes, for a majority of the climb he’s free climbing. AKA: not hooked into anything. AKA: crazy as balls.


Austin hosts a country music morning radio show in Chicago after nearly a decade in sports talk radio (The Jim Rome Show, Steve Gorman SPORTS!) Colin Cowherd and Smash Mouth follow him on Twitter (which he apparently thought was important enough to share here). He also wears pants everyday.
