I recall that the label on our ladder states 300 lb. max. I'm up on the roof every trip before bringing in the slides and I'm 210 lb. Don't think you'd want to hold any clog dancing up there, but you'll be fine.

At one time I was 340 pounds, walking up there was no problem. I had to replace the ladder when I snagged a tree in the mountains, once you see how it is mounted, and the length of the screws, you will not be afraid to use it to get up there!

I'm about 190lbs and have been on the roof a few times to wash it off. No problems ! I do see people all the time at races with several people on their TT roof tops watching.......not me, not on mine !!
