Nevada Climbing takes student climbers upward

Michael Rubio reports on the Nevada Climbing Club, a group of UNR climbers who are devoted not just to the sport itself but to the climbing community as well.

The author sticks the dyno on Short White Men Can’t Jump V2, at the Washoe Boulders. A dyno is a dynamic move that usually involves jumping with one or both hands, and V2 is the difficulty of the problem on the Hueco Scale, which grades boulder problems from V0 to V17. Photo by Michael Rubio.
