File under Things it had never occurred to me existed: 1 a training yard where technicians learn how to climb utility poles.

  1. It's quite logical that there should be a need for such a facility, but I suppose if I'd ever given the matter any thought I'd have assumed that technicians would learn to climb poles in the field. Presumably there are similar – but larger – training sites somewhere for those whose job is to climb electrical pylons.
