Indeed there are some of those types of things in place

We have a few crank-up towers, which the company's owner was too cheap to buy the motor for, so we have to do them by hand. Fortunately they're all like 75' to 100'. Still, they get heavy!

Also we have a couple of pretty impressive pulley systems at a couple towers. Although I don't think we've ever gone up them with the pulleys, we keep them handy for emergency descent. We've also used them for lifting new tower sections most of the way up existing towers.

And yeah, that's always something I'm worried about. I can't climb with the safety gear. It gets me hung up (and has almost thrown me off before) so I would have to quit if the law suddenly required them.
