San Francisco Wooden Ladders

Random question, which would you choose as a ladder of choice, wooden or aluminum? Given the special circumstances involved in the geography of San Francisco and power line issues, the fire department has been constructing wooden ladders since 1917. These ladders are quite cool and knowing the history of their log book on every single ladder ever created using aged Douglas Fur makes them even cooler.
