I see the nub of rock overhead, my fingers grating against rough granite, just shy. I twist and turn, pretzelling, but cannot reach it. My calves spasm against the strain, my legs quiver. Fingers cramp and ache. I swallow back rising panic. I can do this, I know I can. I squat over my toes wedged deep in a crack, tense my thighs and burst upwards. Fingers lock onto the hold, Hell yeah!
The move described is called a Dino...it's very scary, but exhilarating when you stick it! Any climbers dino'ing through this blog hop? And, yeah, I might've taken liberties and made up the word pretzelling...but it works, right?
