I've done it before, granted they were on top rope and a few on boulders. All of them were pretty steep. I've been lucky so far and have stuck all of them. I would have to think pretty seriously before doing it while leading though.

this sounds like the move of a confident climber or even a huge confidence booster (of course depending on situation)

or maybe a desperate climber (talking about my climing partner ... he knows i joke)

definately possible though, confidence needed with hands and feet.

Have a go!

The only thing that would freak me out is 'what if I didn't make it?'

Then you would be grated cheese!, and thats not good now is it?

I agree completely with Geoff (boretribe) and Trevor (climber_trev).

Dynoing upon a slab definitely describes the act of a confident climber, who has complete and utter comfort in their abilities, and the certain repercussions that apply should one fall.

With every action there is a reaction. If you are to dyno while climbing slab, make certain that you have complete confidence of the particular dyno. This would then cause the repercussion of the action a positive one.

Also, as Geoff mentioned earlier; performing such an act is much, much safer while fastened to a tight top rope, and would thus be translated into a pretty sketchy move while leading (especially on trad).
