each time he uses the ladder it turns into a game of tetris

I haven't climbed a ladder in 20 years, (my teens). I've seen and heard of too many accidents to think I would ever find it necessary to climb a ladder ever again.
I'd rather pay 5 bucks to any dummy who'd be willing to take the risk.
Fortunately, I can reach anything I might need to other than my eaves.
Unless your trying to kill your Dad, don't buy him a ladder for Fathers Day.

Why do old guys, (me included), love getting on their roofs?
My Dad is 87 and still gets on the roof to clean the gutters. I am always telling him call me and I will come right over. My Mom will call in a panic telling me...Your Dad is getting ready to get on the roof again!
Two years ago he fell off the roof. He told me the initial fall didn't hurt so bad, but he said the bounce was very painful

I'd think twice.

I have a little giant and don't mind it. That said, the thing is heavy. More often than not, I'd just as soon have a light little single-tasker.

If you only have space for a single ladder, I suppose it's not a bad ladder to have, but it really can be a sumbitch moving the thing around and positioning it.

FWIW, the ladder I linked about has a listed shipping weight from Amazon of 55 pounds. A Luoisville 22ft aluminum extension ladder with only a 225lb capacity weighs 40 pounds. A Werner fiberglas extension ladder with a 300lb rating is actually 59lbs.
They are heavier, but compared to the max capability, not unreasonably so.

It's great as an all around ladder to have in the house because it can be used for so many different purposes. As jspchief mentioned, though, it's a little on the heavy side.
I have the same one its great. It's not that heavy
