Last year alone, Access Fund preserved access to 179 areas and opened 7 closed climbing areas. Join or give and MP will match!

Description 

Pulling the first roof is the crux. You get two holds that are just good enough to get you over the lip to a crimpy rail. Now you face a long move with no good feet to establish yourself on the vertical face. Fun and juggy over the second roof, you'll work up a good pump to the chains!

Location 

Upper Fifth Canyon, left side, scramble 15' up to the ledge- Gyno Boy is third from the left. Goes over two roofs- really steep roof start to clean vertical face.

Protection 

6 bolts to chains. ***NOTE*** you should bring a long draw or sling to place above the first roof. A standard draw will load the biner over the sharp roof edge! and it's easy to fall here- kinda cruxy
