    I think we need a bigger ladder...

    Hard to see in the pic but count 7 stories up and in the middle of the pic where the buildings meet. Yes, that's a condensing unit on a platform off the side of the building.

    Man, if i think about how many times ive left a tool on top of a condenser.

    Just imagine dropping a valve cap?

    2x12, from left building to right building, through the windows.

    There's your working platform. You can just barely get the gauges on probably.
    I've seen guys (framers/drywallers) do similar things, but I never would.

    All that is needed is to repel from the upper window. I charge extra for working off a rope above the sixth floor.
