    He climbed the green wall that had the "sidewalk closed" sign and realized

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "He climbed the green wall that had the "sidewalk closed" sign and realized the workers have gone home. After he climbed down off the wall, he walked down to the sidewalk where they'd been repairing pipes. The left side of the ground was full of small holes. On the left, he could saw a ladder.

    To the right of the ladder there were several deep holes, but he decided not to walk under the ladder, where it was safer, but picked the dangerous path because he was very superstitious.

    He walked as if he were balancing on a rope. Finally he reached the other wall. He climbed over and getting off the wall, he began walking the streets again.


    Thanks.

    The highlighted text is vague. I don't understand much of it.

    To the right of the ladder there were several deep holes, but he decided not to walk under the ladder, where it was safer, but picked the dangerous path because he was very superstitious.

    I tried to write, that after he climbed the wall and got down, he saw a ground with small holes in the left side and big holes in the right side but with a ladder and the only way to pass was under the stairs. But he chose the left side anywat, because he was a very supertitious man.

    Thanks.
