The Balance Dyno is the most unlikely of boulder problems. Start on the left corner of the steepest part of the Lower Wall.

Clamber up onto a ledge and throw a left toe-hook into the big horizontal crack. This should allow you to stand up straight. Then grab a nothing crimp with your left hand, and jump up to a sloping ledge. Hold the considerable outward swing and match the ledge. The crux is getting your feet established on the wall and reaching for a crimp just below the lip.

The dyno is definitely a crowd-pleasing move, but getting established on the face after the dyno is incredibly awkward and maybe a bit height dependent.


Multiple pads and spotters.
