German term or phrase: Ausstiegsleiter (Dach/Dachboden)
Here's the context:
"Im Boden enden unter der Dachfläche nicht abgedeckte, offen Schornsteinzüge. Die ehemaligen Dachdurchbrüche wurden augenscheinlich provisorisch geschlossen. Die ordnungsgemäße Ausführung der Unterspannbahn in diesem Bereich nicht erkennbar. Bei der AUSSTIEGSLEITER fehlte eine Sprosse."
The term Ausstiegsleiter recurs a few times in the text, and each time, hardly any context:-( I've been researching for that term on the net, but the only possible translation I found was "ascension ladder", a term I'm not too sure about.... Any other ideas or comments? Thanks:)

I hope this fits your context; I assume it is describing a ladder which leads to the attic?

agree  William Swanson: While I don't have any web references, I think this refers to the means of access built into many German homes/buildings so that the chimney sweep, etc., can easily inspect the chimney.
