    That is an absurdly huge and steep roof! What was that?

    I don't see what the big deal is. Haven't you guys ever shingled a steep roof before? It's much easier to shingle a steep pitched roof on toe holds than a 4/12 on your knees. Plus, they're only about 25 feet in the air.

    No idea location. Found it posted on internachi site.

    Would become an interesting cascading effect if the top man fell taking all below him.

    Granted it would be a lot easier on the old back, but holding the shingle would sure make the arms tired.

    Yikes! I don't usually mind heights, but roofing sometimes scares me. My uncle was so cavalier about safety I refused to work with him on one particularly steep, high roof. At least it looks like these guys are taking it slow, being careful. Just getting the bundles of shingles up there would be tough. I wonder how they do it.

    I don't know where it is, but it's a church.

    Not when you're always concentrating on not falling off! Your motion is limited, balance harder because you can only move your feet in one direction, all your supplies have to go somewhere, taking up room on that plank or another close one, roof jacks have to be added or moved all the time...and without a harness, you're a step away from breaking your neck. Gimme a 4/12 anyday.

    Do not think of knocking out another person's brains because he differs in opinion from you. It would be as rational to knock yourself on the head because you differ from yourself ten years ago.

    More like 50 feet, but after the first 30 it really does not make a difference.

    That would NOT be good for my vertigo.

    Not to good for your head either if one of the guys above drop their hammer.
    Though it would be interesting how many would be hit by a falling hammer, kinda like a pin ball machine.

    It's not the falling that matters... it's the stopping
