Description

Start in the left most holds of Underdog in the horizontal, but instead of traversing the horizontal, get good feet and dyno (or static if tall enough I am at 6 feet) for the slightly slopey lip above you head. Pull over the lip making a semi awkward mantle. From here it is easy cruising up the arete to the top of the boulder.

The name from this route comes from the fact that after Tim's FA using dyno beta we realized the dyno could be avoided.

Location

On the Barn Door Boulder on the first and second holds in the horizontal of Underdog and go up.

Protection

Pad and a good spotter if you blow the dyno.

This climb is frickin' rad. I flashed it the normal way and then I ended up doing it with my hands both kind matched on a jug further to the right in the crack, this made the dyno bigger (and harder and better) but it was still a deadpoint (5' 10" wingspan). It feels so cool when you stick it 'cause your legs swing really far out and you just feel like a hero, and then you get a super fun v0 highball to finish on. If I traversed into this move from the right then I'd call it a classic, I'll be adding this to my warm-up circuit for sure.

You could play a game to see who can dyno further by just starting further and further to the right in the crack. Nov 7, 2015

Today I did this line, but traversed in from the right most holds of underdog, and then topped out up the arete. Probably clocks in at V2, it was a good amount of fun and definitely added some length to this line. Jul 4, 2015
