A couple of caveats:
   These flexible ladders are HEAVY.  I have a lot of trouble carrying and 
using the ladder.
   Make sure you use a brand that has wider steps.  My first one had small 
round steps which became quite 
uncomfortable after a couple of seconds.  ( I gave that one away and found one 
with much wider steps and weighed 
a little less).

My favorate ladder is a 10 (or is it 12) foot 'A' ladder.  I use this one most 
of the time as it is very stable and easier 
for me to manipulate.
