House Wrap OK for underlayment?

Is house wrap ok to use as underlayment over 1 layer of asphalt shingles under imperial rib root? I figure it breathes better than 30# felt and won't adhere to the underside of the metal when it gets hot. What do you think?

I am not aware of any housewraps that are approved by their manufacturers for roofing applications. I would not do anything that is outside of manufacturer recommendations.

I don't see why it wouldn't work, however, it would be slick as all get up to walk on. This is why they make the roof stuff non-slip.
