    Looks like someone has already been up there and broken the ridge...Was that you?
    Also why may I ask would you need to get up there?

    Probably to clean the window Smurf :p, I'd hazard a guess that the space by the wall is where the rain runs off the flat roof onto the tiles.

    If you are wanting to clean awkward windows like that then wfp method would be your best option if you ask me. Not sure why you are asking this in the trad section though as you already have a wfp trailer mount.

    If I remember rightly when I first got into wfp I bought a pf trolley, 2 poles and a 300gpd ro for £1400.

    I did not use forums back then so learnt the hard way on that one but at least the kit soon payed for it self thank goodness:rolleyes:

    I reckon I can sort a trolley for around 100ish quid as my mate will have most of the stuff already knocking about..he designs and installs fire suppression systems and has pumps etc and fittings already..probably get something heavy duty and not likely to die on me

    you should be able to easily do that window from the ground with a pole + swivel Tbar and swivel squeegee . i choose a Wagtail squeegee but any swiveller will cut the ice
