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.
