    Default How High?

    I climbed the aerial today for the 1st time since my pt test(about 55') in preparation for the one I'll be on in rookie school(between 90'-105'). So that made me curious. What is the highest some of y'all have been on an aerial or platform?

    Just measured the photo (furiously converting to inches).
    Bugger, 1.25 inches.

    our initiation climb the 100'stick, grab the nomex hood, come back down then climb the 93' tower, then you get a ride back down.

    they used to set up the stick to the tower and you had to climb up one, get onto the other and climb down.
