Dyno To A Sloper With A BD 000

Who hasn’t done a dyno to a sloper protected by a Black Diamond 000 cam? Here’s a report from a recent first ascent of a 5.14 at Indian Creek with just that type of movement. A description of this route:

The feature you are climbing runs out, and you have to do an all-points-off sideways jump to a sloper on an arête.’ He said on numerous attempts, he would overshoot the sloper and whip around the corner, getting flipped upside down. ‘When you are pumped and looking out left at that sloper, you are definitely thinking about that BD 000 in sandstone, and about not wanting to flip,’ he said.”
