This is what 'galloping' conductors can do to a pole. I'm sure Xcel is counting their blessings that this section of 69kV line has been switched out of service for years! However, the 23.9kV open Y line down below is still in use.

This line section sat like this for three months before repairs. The multiparts were all replaced with polymer yuk insulators - including the crossarm.
