I would pack a parachute, climb to that top, tell my partner that I quit, and jump off... Actually, I am scared of heights. I would not make it up past 50 feet.

That is just neve racking to watch. I am pretty sketchy with heights too, especially ladders. Although I do love me some roller coasters. And falling from 14,000 feet from a perfectly good airplane was probably the coolest thing I have ever done. No fear at all doing it too. Its such a surreal experience.

I would give it a try, I mean I do similar work climb and land billboard heads weighing anywhere from 20,000-90,000lbs critical lifts overhead while off a ladder at heights up to 150' why not!

like its been said, I would pack a parachute, but the point would be to avoid the climb back down. The climb up would be thrilling and taxing, the climb down would just be annoying.

EDIT: And I am pretty sure that violates OSHA (or equivalent) regulations. I occasionally work at heights and I have never seen free climbing permitted, ever.
There are separate OSHA rules for construction and maintenance as far as free climbing ill try and find them I could be wrong I do know anything above 6 feet requires fall arrest safety equipment

I get shaky on the second rung of the step ladder.

The fact he does it effortless amazes me.
