400' is roughly 395' to far off the ground for me thanks.  I can climb a 40' windmill tower and things move around a bit too much for my taste ;D

You probably would not have liked this tower.... it was a 2000' foot TV tower located in White Lake, NC.  This photo was taken from approximately 1,800' up the tower.  I spent about a week working on it in 1990 replacing the lighting system (it had been damaged by falling ice).

It's the first tower that I ever worked on where I actually looked down at aircraft!
