10 Year Old Crushes the Boulders
On Sunday, November 14th, Dylan Meyerhoffer went to the Sads boulders of Bishop’s volcanic tablelands with a half dozen members of Zero gravity and crushed Rio’s Crack (v6).

For the past half year, Dylan trained with the Zero Gravity Youth Team under the tutelage of Scott Jenerik. “Scott’s really good at helping kids see their potential,” said Marykate Meyerhoffer, Dylan’s mother. “Scott asks them what their goals are and he tailors the program to what the kids say their goals are.” Dylan competes in the 11 and under category and was invited to nationals last year when he placed 6th in the North est America divisional. Dylan’s passion is for the outdoors though and climbing with Zero Gravity this year helped his climbing significantly.

Rio’s Crack suited him well. His small hands fit well onto the small crimps but the crusher still had to fight for the ascent. He made twice as many moves as most people “I’ve never tried that hard,” Dylan said. Dylan climbed classics like the Buttermilk Stem at the Buttermilks and Secret to Success at the Happies earlier in his career and has managed to do the mega-enduro Ironman traverse (v4) in two parts, and nearly crush the small crimps of Howard Carter sit (v6). His psyche is mostly on heading back to Fontainbleau.
Dylan Meyerhoffer began climbing at the age of 3 and has traveled across the world climbing. Dylan bouldered in Fontainebleau, climbed routes in Thailand, and spent time in Yosemite, Squamish, Switzerland, and his favorite boulders of Bishop.
