I have one roof i walk that has a heck of a pitch and i have to crawl around on just to pressure wash the exhaust system.The peek is about 30ft up and the end is about 6 ft of ground. This is the flipper it is that wood shingle type roof. Is there an easier and safer way to get around? What would work to ensure grip? Please help?????

They do make shoes that are meant for cedar shingle roofs. You strap them on the bottoms of your boots and they have cleats at the bottom. Check your local roofing supply and they will have them. I forgot the name but when i get home i can take a pic and show you. By your description of the roof it might be too steep even for them. I would check into it but i think if the roof is too steep the restaurant needs to install a landing by the fan so you can perform safely.

The ones I have are made by KORKER. Dont let them give you a false sense of security though. Always tie down.
