The only scare I get is when collapsing it. I just have to make sure I keep my fingers below the rungs.

+1 to GG, I have had one for years and think it should be OK for emergency rpod roof access but I would suggest not to try to go any higher.

I got onto our house roof once using it and really had to be careful getting down as the wobbling was quite ummm, "unsettling"...and remember to check all the connection point plastic pieces before each use, I have one bracket that cracked near the top step.

Safety first!

Each year, there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries and 300 deaths in the U.S. that are caused by falls from ladders. Most ladder deaths are from falls of 10 feet or less.  https://www.nachi.org/ladder-safety.htm
Never leave footprints behind.
