Been there done that. Not highly recommended.
Top of a 22' ladder changing a light bulb in the car park.
Below was a slab of concrete, steel bins and 4"x4" fence posts with pointed tops.
I impacted flat on my side on a narrow strip of grass between all the obstacles, bounced and landed back on my feet, all before the ladder hit the ground. Not a scratch!
The fact I was in a church car park may have meant some One, was watching over me.
I know the pain of broken ribs, make Endone your friend, sleep upright in a comfy recliner, and heal fast my friend.
