I love my Yates ladders, I have a 7 step set and a 6 step set. The 7 step set are great or bounce testing low on your last piece. The steps are huge so they don't hurt after being on for 2 plus hours.

I think my next wall I'm going to use my Ruskies for the first time...

Caz, ya going to run those Russians with your ladders or trees? I'd think the Speed Aider step width might be too wide to work well with the Garbonzo hooks. If I had the Yates I would consider adding a dedicated rung just under the grab bar, maybe some 4mm perlon thru some stiffer plastic tubing. To my mind and experience, walking up isn't where the Russians are key, but they shine for the high placement reaches. Just thinking here...caution...
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.
