Cannot get to gutter from sunroom Roof

I have a 16 foot sunroom perpendicular to the back of my house. I have a decks on each side of the sunroom. My problem is when I stand on the sunroom roof peak. I cannot get to any part of the main house gutter from the roof area of the sunroom. I need about 2 more feet to work safely.
I called a ladder place: He said 2 ladder jacks with at least a 28 ft ladder extended as the walking plank. I was not keen on that idea as there would be a sag and that is not easy for 1person to handle.
Is there a rig that I can buy or build that I can put on the peak of the sunroom where I can put a plank across to a ladder jack 8 ft away?
I also do not want to ruin the shingles on the sunroom roof.

Why do you need to get to the gutter? Cleaning? Why not use a hose extender for gutter cleaning. They have a pretty good reach, and would prevent you from playing Keystone cops on the roof. There is no sag in proper extruded walkboards. It ain't the fall, but the sudden stop, so be really careful.
