Default Ladder plans for Elevated Blind

I'm in the process of building a Elevated bow blind. I'm using some of the elevator brackets with 5ft legs. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas for for a ladder. Thought I would ask before attempting to make a set

If you can weld, some 1 1/2” 14ga square tubing would be fast, cheap and easy.

If not, for 5 ft of ladder some treated 2x4 screwed together?

Two 2x6s with some 2x4s cut to 18 inches every 18 inches for steps.

Also with the elevators donít go too short. Throw some 8 foot legs in there instead of the 5 footers. Youíll be glad you did.

Make sure your ladder has plenty of angle. Nothing harder than to carry all your crap up and down a straight up ladder.

Can you weld?
4" c-channel for the sides & the steps works great & lasts forever.

1" square tubing would be perfect. If you cant weld I know someone who can build for you
