Default lightwgt.climbing stick fully conected.

WHO MAKES ONE OUT OF ALUMINUM.I am talking about the sticks like Dicks sporting goods sell that are 5pcs connected to each other that go from the ground to 20feet,they weigh 20 pounds.
LEANING BACK WITH A LINESMAN BELT for to long hanging individual sticks kills my sides/kidneys.I would like to get back in a tree but not hurt myself trying.I hunt state land that is very hilly so my back is the only way to get where I WANT TO BE,no cart would work.

You might want to do some investigation into hunting out of a tree saddle. IMHO it's the only way to fly when you're hunting public and have to go in a ways. My back is garbage and the saddle is much more comfortable for me than a tree stand ever was. It's not Lazy Boy comfy but I can hack it much better than the same time in a conventional stand not to mention how much lighter my climbing system and saddle are than a stand and a ladder like you're referring to. Do a little Google research but I'm warning you; it's a bigger rabbit hole than shooting trad! Consider youself warned. LOL

I don’t know if they still make them but I have an Ameristep aluminum with the double steps and it’s great but you still have to use a lineman belt to set up.

Lately I've been looking at those telescoping ladders. Not cheap, but...

mamba, I think most all of the 20' sticks are made of steel and are going to be pretty heavy and a PITA to transport. There are a number of good sectional sticks available these days that are fairly light, easy to deploy, and easy to carry. I use the very cost-effective Hawk Helium 30" sticks that weigh about 3# each and they have double steps which fold in making them easier to transport. Four sticks (12#) should easily get you to 17' or so. There are even lighter but more expensive options.

You mentioned issues with the lineman's belt. You might want to try a small change in the way you are using it. Try keeping it positioned around the tree so that it's above your waistline. Then, try to get used to not leaning back so much, staying in closer to the tree so you alleviate the pressure on your back.

BTW, I too am retired, out of shape, AND have had back issues and this works good for me. And, like Keith, I also use a tree saddle when hunting public land. Its versatility is unbeatable. Good luck!
