bamboo ladders are light, strong and safe to use around electricity
Everything will be OK. Don't worry. They have their hard hats on!
Who needs fiberglass when bamboo is plentiful. I wonder what product or method they use to hold the ladder's rungs to the rails. I've seen where they use bamboo to build scaffolding on commercial high rises too. It's probably just as strong,light and spark proof as fiberglass.
Looks like a Chinese acrobatic show. At first glance I thought "Dang, look at what that guy on the bottom is doing!" Then I look around and see the supervisor holding his chin, the police van to the right, and just the right height for the ladder too. Oh, oh. Now where is that policeman?

I've got no problem at all with the bamboo ladder, I'm well familiar with that amazing stuff. My fascination is with the Asian version of Clark Kent holding the ****ed thing! I wanna be him when I grow up....

Me...I'd say to NOT give the guy holding up the ladder WITH ANOTHER GUY ON IT up like that any crap.....He'd probably just pick you up and toss YOU over the building!! And then take the OSHA guy that came with you and toss him over right on top of you and THEN toss the horse you rode in one on top of the both of you.....all done with one hand while eating his lunch with chopsticks held in the other hand!!!!!!!
Never pick a fight with an old guy. Old guys are too smart to fight and get hurt. They'll just kill you and get it over with.
I have serious doubts about this photo. I don't think the guy on the bottom could hold anyone up like that for very long. However, look where the ladder crosses the little balcony/laundry rack. Are those white cords lashing it on?
Look at the guy holding the ladder, and the two or more guys behind him in similar jackets (I'd say "khaki" colored, but that sounds like a cat hackin' up a hairball)... Anyway, I think those are the backup ladder holderuppers! Either that, or they have a bet on how long the guy can hold the ladder, and/or how high the other guy will bounce when he hits the ground!
OR, the guy holding his chin is thinking, "I don't like that guy very much anyway"... "Hey, how about you let ME hold that ladder???"
