Matt sticking the dyno.


Classic dyno.

Start on the Best Pocket in the World (tm) and a good sidepull, set your feet on the convenient edge, and fire for a perfect jug at the lip.

Perfect rock and a perfect landing means you can try it over and over again.


The main overhanging face at the Anarchy boulders.

This is a much more difficult dyno if the edge happens to be inconvenient and you're forced to use higher footholds. Don't overgrip on the starting pocket or you might find yourself short of some finger flesh.

Did this a few months back, seems to be very height dependant, can be a V3 if you are tall and a V6 is you are small.

Height dependent indeed, but cool problem none the less.

One-move-wonder to easy top-out. Book says it's a 7 but with basic dyno know-how and a bit of lank, V4 boulderers can easily send this guy.

In the original, stapled paper, brown cover little bitty guide from the mid 90s, this was rated V6, but as everyone says the rating is almost meaningless as it's just a long huck between good holds.
