Default How to stand on the roof?

I want to stand on my Vue's roof so I can climb onto a garage roof. Off course I don't want to step directly on the roof which would dent it, so I'm thinking of laying some boards down side to side on the roof rails or front to back on the roof rack bars. Any thoughts?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Are we looking for good uses for the VUE?

Buy a good ladder?

I got a ladder but not comfortable stepping off it to get on the roof 8 or 9 feet off the ground. On top of the Vue it's only 2 or 3 feet higher.

Consider renting a 15' scaffold from Home Depot for about $80.00 a day rather than take a chance of hurting yourself or your Vue roof if you are uncomfortable stepping off a secured ladder.
