These are bolts on "Iron Giants" used to climb up for maintenance. This is the view you would have just before grabbing the first bolt as you ascend these huge electrical beasts. Taken in Edmonton, Alberta close to Manning freeway and 158th Avenue; relative height above sea level 2,192ft. Picture taken at 6ft above the ground. Fear of heights starts at ground level.
