Also, take into account the fact that you will get a bit of a boost at the bottom of the ladder due to your buoyancy in the water. The height I have to bring my feet up to get on the bottom rung of the ladder would make it very hard on dry ground, but in the water it is not to bad as I weight a little less for the bottom part of the boost up onto the step. Not the greatest, but easily do-able.
