A vertical oriented wind turbine must be fixed on a rotable mount. Otherwise it cannot use well the wind. And by such a mount, its blades would destroy a zip line running from its pinnacle to the ground.

Interestingly the first transmission aerial system of Eiffel Tower was similiar to the proposed zip line

This is one of the best projects I have ever seen. This would make The Eiffel Tower even more beautiful.
