Dyno off the side pull underclings, slap the sloper, and grab the jug. Worth doing every time.


Crashpad and spot.

I'm pretty sure it's not V5, at least not with the left sloper. I think it's V5 without the left sloper. I'll have to check my sources though. I don't boulder V5 and I got up it without much fanfare.

Edit: It's V5 with the 2 handed dyno or V3 with the left slap sloper. One is called Vaino's Dyno and the other is called leaping lizards. At least that's what my sources tell me.

I'm not sure which is the V5 and which the V3, so I just cleared my rating.

Vaino's Dyno is a different problem - it doesn't go for the big flat hold of Leaping Lizards, but rather a two-handed dyno slaps for the sloping ledge to the left (do not use the chopped hold), from two side-pulls low down, then pulls a mantle.

Also to the best of my knowledge Leaping Lizards avoids the sloping ledge of Vaino's.

Jordan's right about the ratings, but Vaino's Dyno is a different problem.

Not that tall and I didn't use the sloper. Used the side pulls and aimed for the lip with the right. Didn't seem V3 for the area, feels v1
