Did this ages ago, but barely remember it - pretty sure I by-passed the dyno then though (by climbing around it to the left to avoid it). Did it this time!

Bailed out left at the very top. Didn't place enough gear.

No idea what the dyno reference in the Rockfax is on about, can't say I'd fancy leaping up that wall above that landing at HVS.

Both attempted to lead it - I reached the top but couldn't top out - sloping finish on a humid night ain't much fun.
