The dyno is one of the most dramatic moves in climbing. That all or nothing movement where a climber leaps from one hold to another.
Aside from garnering attention from members of the opposite sex, the dyno does have a practical purpose- helping you to move to otherwise out of reach holds.
In this video, adidas-sponsoered climber Shauna Coxsey runs through a few key pointers that should get you leaping up the wall like a climbing God.
Top Dyno Tips:
- Keep your hips in: Keeping your hips close to the wall will allow you to gain much more height without wasting energy.
- Push from your feet and legs: Using bigger muscles will generate more power. Stand-up on your feet and push harder.
- Commit: The dynao is all about risk. You have to be fully committed to make the move. Sometimes you will fail, but that’s the only way to succeed in climbing
