Pole Climbing School

Earlier this week, I went to Austin, TX for Pole Climbing School. I learned how to climb telephone poles using a ladder against the pole, using a ladder against the span of cable between two poles, and using poles that have steps installed in them. Here's a picture:

After 11 years I still hate putting a ladder midspan. I've only used steps a couple of times.

I can definitely understand why. That part of the training was the most complicated way to secure the ladder. They made it easier by only having the training span at about six feet, so the ladder was pretty steady and I was only two rungs up. If I end up climbing in a few months, I'm hoping it doesn't include midspan work.

There's a possibility I'll be doing some of this at work in a few months.
