    Posting in response to a PM I received off a friend here who is shortly to loose his mast climbing virginity, but feel this will be a fascinating watch for all

    Changing a lightbulb on a 1700ft mast

    I will put a disclaimer in: watching this video does not make you an expert climber, far from it, and doing this for real should only be attempted under the tuition of an expert.

    Enjoy!

    Big kudos to Oort, who today lost lost his mast climbing virginity and well and truly popped his cherry. Very pleasing to hear you say as we returned to terra firma that you wanted to repeat the exercise in warmer weather. I am of course well aware that I took you well and truly out of your comfort zone and got you doing something that you never ever imagined you would ever do. But today you did something that 99% of the population would never ever consider. Just by stepping onto the first step you did something remarkable.

    The evidence to show your friends:
