This is a link-up of "Headless Franken Chicken, .12a," and "Under Pressure's" .12b 2nd pitch. It is a nice, long, enduro pitch with laybacking and a dyno crux.


Start up "Headless...", clip the anchor, then link 2 new bolts into "Under Pressure's" 2nd pitch. Lower down twice or bring a 2nd rope. The connection is only about 5.11.


16 draws.

Really fun, pumpy endurance link-up. The dyno move shut me down after quite a few tries. Is the key a two-hand dyno off the good edges? I tried static beta off shitty holds and dynos off both low good and high shitty edges. There is now a bail biner on the second-to-last bolt. If you make the move, pat yourself on the back.

Left hand on the good hand, right foot groin level, right hand black rounded crimp, and throw to almost into the v-slot with your left hand.
