What is a Vertical Ladder for a Bunk Bed?
A vertical ladder is a ladder that attaches to a bunk bed vertically and commonly hooks to the upper and lower side rails.
Advantages of Vertical Ladder:
Vertical ladders tend to occupy less space in a bedroom. In addition, this style of ladders does not hinder the function of the under bed drawers or the pull-out trundle bed. Check image below.

Younger kids might not be tall enough to climb this type of ladder since the first step is about the same height as bottom side rail.
If space is not an issue in a bedroom and an under bed drawer or trundle are not ordered than a slanted ladder is recommended.
If under bed drawers or trundle bed are to be used than a short vertical ladder is recommended when offered by manufacturer.
