Description 

Find the Penny Boulder downhill and a bit North of the Mental Block. On the west side of the south face is a rail just aboe head height. Grab it and lunge to the top. Yummy. Variations include double dyno, static lockoff via fingerlock in rail, and lunging from lower down on the SW arete to the top. Drool.

Protection 

Flat landing, pad is nice.

Try this problem one handed, its exciting! The trick is to get your left foot really high, almost up by your left hand in a heel- toe cam, then go with your right hand to the top.

Penny Lunge is one of my favorite problems about at Rotary. It's just easy, but it looks good to someone who sucks at climbing or is just watching.

The Penny Lunge is super sweet, try using the sw lower hold to match and lunge!!

Good way to practice a cool dynamic move, I don't know if I would call it a dyno though.

If you are getting bored with this dyno, try an alternate start; with your left hand on the big jug about a foot down from the crack on the left side and your right on a crimpy sidepull about a foot and a half down from the crack. Brings some new excitement.
