Roháč is dominated by the mighty ends of Ostrý Roháč and Plačlivého, Volovca, Rákoňa, Troch Kôp, Baník, Skriniarok, Salatín, Brestová, which form a typical alpine group with perfectly developed glacial forms. Their highest shields form an irreducible pair of slim rocky hills, which resemble the two devilish corners, and even so they have been given this commendable name.
