Changing the Lightbulb on a 1500-Foot Tower Is Breathtakingly Terrifying
April 15, 2017
My pores on the palms of my hands are shaking. My caps on my knees are sweating. I’m having trouble breathing. And it’s all because of this slightly terrifying video showing a tower climber climbing atop a 1500-foot TV tower to change the lightbulb like it’s a leisurely walk in the park.

Somebody has to change out that lightbulb at the top of those tall TV towers!
This is tower climber Kevin Schmidt making the climb to the very top of the now inactive KDLT TV analog broadcast antenna near Salem, SD.
It was a beautiful fall day for a climb and the views are stunning! I would suggest watching at 1080 HD in full screen to get a small taste of the experience.
