MAK- you must be like 8ft tall to reach that left side! No way I could have done it without getting on the other peak.

yes that is correct

I was going to have my guy take a pic but with as windy as it was I didn't want him to leave the ladder. it was on the sidewalk which had a good angle to it so we had boards under it to level it off.

Fall protection is cheap. Five point harness with a six foot lanyard and your good to go.

Tie a life line on the roof somewhere, chimminey for example. Use a "rope grab" from your lanyard to your lifeline, then you can make any Jimmy Rig you want!
