Start on Blankety Blank and climb that route past it's 1st bolt to a sloping ledge system. Cut sharply left, clip a fixed pin and make balancy moves on slick rock past the pin to a stance with a bolt. Clip the bolt and then move straight left to easier ground and finish with the upper section of Barney. It's probably best to cut way right to the edge of the flake and hand traverse back left to anchors as the pro is better.

A somewhat silly route that wanders all over (think Switchbacks) but it does have some decent climbing on it. Shorter climbers may have to take a cue from the name and dino (dyno) for the good holds above the 2nd bolt.


20' right of Barney.


2 bolts, fixed knifeblade, gear to 2.5", 2 bolt anchor/rap.
