      In English, that activity is known as "jumping" and the ladder as a "jumping ladder".

      Jumping is more usually performed ship-to-ship with the two vessels side by side and making the same speed. I have done it but only ever under calm conditions. It's a lot more challenging when there's a swell because the two ships will typically move vertically with respect to each other. The jump needs to be timed just right.

      The ice-to-ship jump in the video is impressive.
