Recommendation for bathroom exhaust fan venting?

I'm in the middle of remodeling our bathroom (see 40 sq.ft bathroom remodel thread in the project showcase). After gutting the room, I found the exhaust fan had not been plumbed, and was just venting into the fiberglass batting. It's just a crawlspace attic above, with a direct shot to the middle of the roof above. Would my best bet just be to run the venting straight up through the roof? I know most don't recommend a soffit vent because of moisture being pulled back into the home, but I also read that some contractors don't like to puncture the roof for vents when they don't have to. Any suggestions?

Never head of trying to avoid a hole in the roof, not going to leak if it's done right.
It would be best to insulate it those so your less likly to get condinsation running back into the fan.
