Abstract: We show that for every Banach lattice $ E$ failing RNP and not containing $ {c_0}$ (resp. containing $ {c_0}$) and for every $ \varepsilon > 0$ there exists a solid convex closed subset $ D$ of the unit ball of $ E$, such that

$\displaystyle \operatorname{dist} [\operatorname{ext} ({\overline D ^{\sigma ({... ...)}}),E] > 1 - \varepsilon (\operatorname{resp} . > \tfrac{1}{2} - \varepsilon )$

and such that every slice of $ D$ has diameter bigger than $ 2 - \varepsilon $.

We also prove that these results are optimal. We apply them to construct rough lattice norms with almost optimal constant on non-Asplund Banach lattices.
