I've done that but with the gangway lowered.  High seas and scary as hell.  I used to work for an inspection company in Freeport, TX.

Ha! I used to live in Freeport! And I worked offshore in tropical storms. I didn't do what is featured on those gifs.....but I did have to climb the derrick about six times in one day in order to keep fixing a geolograph line that kept breaking and coming loose! And I had to go all the way up to the crown!

I had to climb up the derrick to the monkey board and that's where the Safety Belt ENDED! So I had to climb the rest of the sixty feet or so up to the top just by hanging on to the steel ladder...in a shrieking downpour with 65 mph winds!

When you're way up in that derrick you're about 300 feet off the surface of the ocean! And then I had to climb through the derrick and walk around on the girts while I fixed my little steel line!

All the superintendents were watching me out of their office windows!
