I would not let anyone climb a tower right now.
Get up there get cold, can't get down quick enough, and you get hypothermia and trapped up there.

I would just rent a tow-behind lift.  most can reach almost 50ft. 
All lot of peace of mind for not too much money.

Amen to that! Once above the tree tops you never have a problem flying a kite. This roof was a little rough yesterday.
