Has anyone tried the tank dyno at wimberry in the last few years (decades?). Looks pretty doable but clearly itís not that easy. As I understand itís staying on the top hold rather than the distance which is the challenge. But I may be wrong. I honestly donít remember ever hearing of someone actually properly trying it. It just seems to have been a project forever.

Didn't Will Atkinson do that ages ago?

No updates one here:  https://ukbouldering.com/board/index.php?topic=6570.625

Or here:  https://ukbouldering.fandom.com/wiki/Dyno_SCIENCE

But there's every chance he did and no-one got round to updating?

Hmmm. Would be good to know if he did it. Would almost definitely be the hardest thing at wimberry boulders if he did.

I asked Will if he did it.

ďNo I didnít. Had a session on it, felt close distance wise. Got a massive flapper. Never went back.Ē

Cheer Cheque. Sounds like it is definitely doable then. Just needs someone really good at dynos with rhino skin.

Haha, he must be getting bored writing to all the folks asking him the same question...  :lol: (I just had the same reply)

Looking through Will's old vids, he certainly had a run of good form. He seems to just fish and play frisbee these days (according to IG).
