On a speck of dust
I wouldn't even have guys do that, let alone do it myself,

no way in hay
That is crazy stuff. Pic was stolen. I am in no way taking credit for it.

Learned how to install shingles in mid winter only using 2x4's for toe boards. Think that's as stupid as I've gotten. Probably not but can't recall atm.

I worked with a guy that would do that. Little monkey.
Wasn't me? I'm not really little, not fat, just kinda tall and normal weight, not skinny either. I'd scare the byJesus out of coworkers on steep roofs. It's in the shoes and balance, IMO. Grabbed my BIL once on a 4-12 when he was about to slide off a metal roof we were installing.

For the type of work I do, (farm), I do need a measure of safety on my footwear.
I got the heavy shoes I'll wear in cold weather, but summer is coming and canvas deck mocs just don't cut it. Broke the end of a toe just about off doing that. Doc sowed it back on, but was a long time healing.

Almost to the peak. Thinking another 10' ladder will get there.

View attachment 162674
Not buying it photo was taken as a stunt. First off the extension ladders are not even fully extended out if they were than no need for the step ladder. Second two pump jacks and a stage/scaffold is quick enough if you plan on doing anything more than changing a light bulb.

I've only got some old school metal hand me downs. Aside from the one inch drop of death and the occasional non biting issue they work great.

Guy farthest to the right has the right idea for that work.
I think the prescription is one shot for every story up you're working.
