Start on the two side pulls for "A-Frame Crimps" and dyno to the lip. Thats right, dyno. It's already hard to establish for the V8, then add a hard 5ft dyno from there to the top.


In the A-Frame.

More like V5, maybe V6- at most. I certainly don't onsight V10 and I onsighted this today. Nowhere near as hard as Block Obama and is of a similar style. Feb 27, 2011

i intended to do the original line when i did this prob back in feb 2010; but, i did it this way instead--i thought it was easier than using the crimps. With that said, it really didn't seem like a different line (as opposed to the crimp version)--it seemed more like an alternative way to do the same problem.

Should this variation really be distinguished from the crimp version??? it seems like a matter of different beta. (Similar grade, identical start/end, etc.).

regardless, its a fun problem. thanks for posting all the silverbell stuff! May 12, 2011

Doing the dyno is easier for me as well. The first time I ever tried the crimp problem, I had to resist the urge to dyno, so using the crimps feels more contrived than just jumping. But as someone who loves dynos, this is one of the better ones I've done around town.

As far as giving it a separate name, I don't know. Given Silverbells long history of contrivances, eliminates and variations, it seems to make some sense. If nothing else it opens up peoples mind to the possibility of a big dyno, and maybe helps them see other potential variations in the finite rock of Silverbell. May 13, 2011

Agreed, nowhere near V8, V6 max. Is there an admin that can reign in the grade inflation? Mar 27, 2013
