Yeah. Go big or go home. Ian on Ballistic.


Start on the jug in the middle of the face and do a ballistic dyno to the lip and mantel. A huge move.


Walk down from the Smooth Operator parking (coming from north shore entrance the parking is on the way down to the ranger station). Walk down the gravel trail towards the lake and about halfway down there is a cube boulder on the right near the trail. Head up into the woods above the cube boulder and go uphill and trend slightly left. About 150 feet off the trail.


2 pads.

I found 3 sequences that are possible but probably as hard as the dyno, I think this compares with the wonder hole dyno in Hueco but could be a touch easier.

Have you sent Ballistic and Wonderhole Dyno? If not how can you compare the 2? Or are you just being a baiter... A masterbaiter..

I have not sent either but have come equally close to both? I don't know, I think it is a V9/10 move and a very nice problem.

Fair enough. I think the two hardest single moves I've done at the lake are both on this wall.

Honestly, I think both of those and "Hole in One" all feel similar in terms of difficulty when I see them in videos.

Props to Aaron Wait for firing the third ascent of this rig this past weekend!

Unfortunately, Hot and Ready is a little easier than this problem. Still a nice dyno but not as singular as I had thought.
