Insignificant Dyno on Groovy

(If you are on Facebook, you may have seen this.  I post it here mainly to see how one does post videos on my blog.)

As mentioned, in order to start this climb one had to hold on and reach up a leg about 4+' high. Due to my size and newness to the sport (actual climbers would do this problem differently either being more flexible or using smaller holds or using their palm for support, etc), I had to jump (aka dyno) up to a hold that I was confident I could grab and though a little unorthodox worked. The sole reason it worked was thanks to my friend Leslie training me the last month. Thanks Leslie!!

I also want to point out that I am wearing all those clothes because it was really cold out there and windy and lightly sprinkling and your fingers froze on the rocks very quickly. (And I am talking to myself as to what moves I am going to do next after I get myself up to that point.  The whole trig side of climbing, :)!)  But it was so much fun!  I can't wait to do it again!

(Let me know if it plays or not!)
