Description

A very fun dyno using some uncharacteristic rock for lincoln woods. Start low on underclings in the quartzite on the right side of the cave. Move up mostly using crimps in the vertical crack and join the Pond Cave Traverse crack at its midway point. Grab a jug up and left and then launch yourself up and right to a decent hold over the lip that is both far away and hard to see (scope out ahead). Top out from there. This is a fun problem to try even if V7 is outside of your range.

Location

Right side of the pond cave in the quartzite band. Pretty much below the middle of the pond cave traverse.

Protection

pads, the dyno sends you flying.

Sorry for the background noise, there was a drone.
(I don't suggest that you campus half the climb, that's just how I like to do it.)
