Mind you was a long roof valley to do on both sides of the main apex.

For gutter work you would be better off buying an ankalad as is much safer/better than "foot the ladder " as the ankalad when depolyed will not only stops backward slip and sideways slip but also takes the bounce out of the ladder too. Not to mention you can use the ladder with an ankalad fitted & deployed free standing upto 14 foot aswell which comes in very handy for the likes of conservtory roof cleans etc:)

 

To be honest for me the only time I would use a foot the ladder type device now is when say I'm only wanting to use the top section on me tripple ladder when need to set the ladder section on a flat roof clearing gutters, downspouts above it and/or for ground floor work. I have easi-dec ladder spurs for those kind of jobs at the mo but may get myself foot the ladder aswell to try it out.

To wash over guttering, fascias etc I tend to use a water fed pole alot now as is a safer method to use especially on awkward access jobs;)

i pefer to hand job it but sometimes theres casrs in the way an stuff so wfp them then i also allways wfp apex's i find it mch quicker to pole them
