Start on the big jug in the left scoop on the wall, and dyno to a flat jug, without using the good holds out left. This is a elimination dyno. S.W. did the first ascent and rated it V Hard, Mark H. repeated it and called it V8.




Huh... well next time be a bit nicer in the future, it could get you a long way. I only changed a little bit of the info, due to you being a little enraged. It's nice to stick up for your friends, but maybe you should let them do the taking and correcting their own actions from time to time. Calling me a dick doesn't prove anything, and won't make you look bigger to me, only smaller.

I did do Zion, I barely got the jug after about 5 sessions. Obviously, you think shorter people can't dyno. I can go film it uncut and put it online for you to see? Aug 3, 2009

I actually read an article on about this climb. It is supposedly the largest outdoor dyno in the world, and it took Skyler Weeks (a dyno world record holder) over 70 sessions to complete it. In light of this, it is incredible Wade that you were able to do it in 5 tries. It also seems that V7/V8 is a bit of a sandbag. I have been there, and it looks like a sweet climb. I will try to add some other routes in this area soon. Nov 12, 2009
It took me 5 sessions, not 5 tries. About 25 attempts each session. There is a really high foot that Mark and I used that made the dyno a lot easier. There is one project left on this boulder, the Real V16 dyno. It's in the right scoop and you just dyno from the jug rail system to a crimp and dish just over the lip. Have fun! Nov 17, 2009

I really hate to agree with Wade about this, but I feel that the climb is V8 as well. I did this today (and while it took me more than 3 tries) I would put this on par with other V8 dynos I've done (Phantom Fighter at Big Bend and the Goat Dyno at Millenium). Mar 18, 2010

What tcmillieri says is true. I was there and took photos. It was sick!! Man, it took him about 5-8 tries I think? The fastest I've seen that big of an outside dyno go down. It was impressive. Nice work, Tom!! Mar 20, 2010
Nice job, guys! I would love to see somebody do it with the low feet that I used and see how it compares in difficulty! I tried to use the high feet, but I can't even get my foot that high! I just put up a new big dyno in the freight train boulders called "Babylon". Check it out! Really cool move and not contrived. Email me for beta. Mar 22, 2010

Hey Skylar,
Would be psyched to check it out when I get back from Joe's! Hopefully, I'll catch you at the DBC sometime this week and we'll shoptalk.

After all these years, most of the dynos mentioned are settling around hard V9. This is the hardest of all Goat Dyno, Phanom Fighter. Great boulder, but V8 seems low compared to other in the area. This is significantly harder than Goat Dyno. May 14, 2017
