Gutter Cleaning - Climbing the 2nd floor roof

What is the proper way to clean the Gutters on the 2nd floor roof. I have borrowed a 30 ft ladder which can reach the 20ft height of the gutter.
Any experiences on climbing the 2nd floor roof and then cleaning the gutter sitting on the roof.

Pull out your Yellow Pages and look under gutter cleaning. Make sure they have insurance. Or get Leafguard gutters installed. Forget the add on helmits and screens... they don't work.

With all due respect, while Leafguard may be slightly better than add-on helmets, it is still in the same category. A premium gutter screen, such as Steelco (www.gutterscreen.net) is just as effective (with the possible exception of pine needles) and cost a fraction of what the gutter cover products cost.
There is no product that will make rain gutters 100 percent maintenance free. A good product will allow the gutters to work at maximum efficiency in a heavy rain, while reducing gutter maintenance to a bare minimum. With any type of gutter protection, the gutters should still be inspected at least twice per year (after the leaves have fallen, and after the snow has melted).
While it would seem that gutter covers would keep out more debris than a typical gutter screen, that is not always the case. It depends on the kind of leaves and debris that target your roof. In any event, gutter covers will be FAR more difficult to remove for gutter servicing than a gutter screen will be. However, cheapo screens can be more trouble than their worth. That's why I recommend Steelco. They are undeniably the best, and they are not expensive.

If it scares you, don't do it. Whether it's actually safe depends largely on the slope of the roof and how well the gutter was attached to the fascia.
