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!


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.


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
