Where to get rungs for individual rung ladder?


I'm surprised there's not something out there for this purpose. I would love to not use the U bars, but if that's the only option maybe. Does anyone know of a low profile fixed ladder? I'm grabbing at straws here, lol.

I believe the wall might be more like 6 ft if it matters. And I would not be going up there when it's wet out. A slip while working up there would mean falling about 25ft down a steep rocky hillside.

If you google 'wall ladder' some interesting stuff comes up including this one for climbers.

For only 7', some sort of dock ladder should do it.

Lordy, even MORE reason to make sure the rungs there are truly up to the task.

How about a picture of this escarpment?

You said you didn't want a ladder.

Otherwise I'm sure folks would have suggested something like that.

Glad to hear you're getting close to finding a solution that will work for you.

Yea, I gave in somewhere in the middle of the thread, lol. I'll still take any suggestions on a better or less expensive alternative. Thanks to all those that helped.
