If you are in certain levels (Quarantine Village, Laborers), you do not
need a grappling hook to get on to the roof of a house. Run up to the
wall, face it, and jump. Your character will jump twice the normal height
of the usual jump and land on top of the roof without hanging on the side.

SAVE YOUR HEALTH:
If you're spotted, just hide. It's not worth wasting health just to be big
and kill them in a bloody fight. Note the AI is dumb and you can usually
just hide behind a tree and they'll forget about you. Then you can go for
the jugular in a stealth kill.
