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
