Climbing over a barbed wire fence

For years I've wondered how easily one could climb over a barbed wire fence. Now that I have an chance to include such a scene in one of my stories, and Google failing me in this regard, I pose the question here.

How easy is it to climb over a barbed wire fence? Between this one, this one, and this one, which is easier to get over? Would a nearby tree on either side help?A telephone pole? Which side is better?

My character has little time to prepare for such an event, and isn't carrying any equipment to help him (clippers, gloves, etc). He also has to help others get over the fence. He's around twelve years old, a good climber, and pretty strong.

Thanks in advance!
