What's your practice for this area? We stay back with our caps and run lead over it and onto the last cap held back at the W intersection.

We laid a gasket on the lead with IW against the aluminum valleys but can see how you could hammer that w down for a standard cap install across the valleys.

Just in case....

If not Ice and Water, or Lead:

Cut valleys so they meet and lap, takes a little effort, but get them fairly tight.
Install Felt over join
Install a Triangle piece of metal (cut from 1 side of the valley top) over the felt, triangle point going over the Ridge
Instal Caps over the whole works.

Works like a charm, and you need not bring anything extra along.
