the counter-strike ladder-walk is probably a remnant of the old days when it started out as a mod for half life. By now, I think it would feel weird to have an actual climbing animation for ladders - or having to put the weapon away. But then again firing while on a ladder is next to useless anyway, the accuracy is pretty much like firing during a jump which makes hitting anything (except maybe the dude "walking" up in front of you) next to impossible.

I heard they actually put that in early CS:S development. They removed it during playtesting because it made the climber a sitting duck free of cost, which messes with balance (something that the game takes very seriously)
