I'm a retired firefighter and we used "roof ladders". They were ladders with
swing out hooks on the end to go over the ridge of the roofs

I just did a google for "roof ladders" and got several hits.

Be safe

Does anyone have experience using a "chicken ladder" on their roof? My 
only experience was in Dublin (EI), where we used similar devices on 
slate roofs at Trinity College (for fear of dislodging slate tiles and 
then sliding off or going through the roof).

For visual reference, go to:


Acro's other products might come in handy for those of us with 
roof-mounted towers.
