Description Suggest change

For those about to DYNO, we salute you! It is recommended that you stickclip the first two bolts of this climb if you have never done it before. Even better, have a local who knows the dyno move for the opening sequence show you how it's done. Be prepared for a fall on your way to the third bolt while doing a stand-up sequence that is a bit difficult due to a secret, hidden hold. Crimp and smear your way past the fourth and fifth bolts, and after that, its a jughaul to the anchors. This climb is the true test of one's inner strenth, a gateway to the future ranking of strongman or strongwoman.

Location Suggest change

Son of a Thousand Fathers is in the Spearfish Canyon Limestone guidebook. It is located to the right of Tongueless Wonder. Belay from the trail and get ready for a catch right off the deck.

Protection Suggest change

7 quickdraws and closed shut anchors. Be careful not to backclip or get twisted in your rope when doing the powerful moves off the deck.
