Description: Many of us live in a sunny world of what we believe to be ground ladders.
In this reality we just carry, throw, and extend ladders.

But...there is another world. A world that’s not as sunny not as brightly lit. In this world Ladders are spliced, walls are scaled, buckets are extended, and buildings are bridged. This is the Dark Side!
