Hardest (?) dyno repeated: 3rd shot


Saturday, 1 November

Mark Hobson made quick work of the recently opened dyno 'Zion' in Clear Creek Canyon. Skyler Weekes did the first ascent in early October after 76 days of work and refrained from grading the jump. 8a.nu quickly proposed/speculated the grade to be 8C+ (Mark registered it at that grade on his scorecard) based on the fact that Skyler is the world dyno record holder, and took a significant amount of time before he made the FA. Brian Solano, who filmed the ascent, notes that Mark might well have flashed the problem if he had given it a serious effort. Footage of the ascent can be expected on MVM soon.
