A good view of the short dyno about 3/4 of the way up. Both hands on a decent jug at about belly level, pull your feet up as high as you can, and lunge for the next crack. You want to hit right on those water streaks (where I'm looking in the photo).  My first lead, shaking out right above the crux (the overhanging awkward first move of the climb which you can see right below my feet).   A view of "The Thumb". From this angle, you can (sort of) see how the formation gets it's name.  Belaying at Big Block. Climbing may be expensive, but this sort of high fashion can't be bought at ANY price!  Remember to wear your brain bucket! Be careful out there, especially solo! <br /> <br />Disclaimer: Viewing of this photo may lead to nausea and vomiting... I'm an ugly bastard!
