    Dan with those sort of jobs best use a wfp instead of struggling trying to trad them even with trad gear attached to a pole takes loads of practice to do a decent job.

    Just get a back pack with a cheap as chips pole. Only need a glass fibre one. Get on eBay loads of great bargains on there.

    Lay your ladders on the roof tiles if the gutter isn't above the tiles and get someone to foot your ladder or park your van wheel against the ladder. Either way it's a ball ache.

    Or ever just as bad could clamber over the tiles like I see so many do.

    At the end of the day there is no point in risking life and limb just to earn a few bob on awkward windows like that.
