Kody working the first dyno on Natural Selection.

Description 

I know for sure I am not the first person to do this, so let me know if you've got info on the problem.

Start on two crimps on the left side of the overhung face. Make an all points off dyno to the good dish. From there, make another big move to the lip right below the top of the boulder. Top out straight up (the same way you top out The Millennium Falcon).

The first move isn't necessarily hard, it's just not natural, but it's a great move.

Location 

This is on the left side of the west overhanging face of the Millennium Falcon Boulder.

Protection 

Pads and spotters.

We've played around on that, fun hard alternative to the standard Falcon. Have you tried the arete on the far right side of the Falcon Boulder? We couldn't stick it, but it felt doable.

I don't we've tried the right arete. Does it start the same as Falcon? I saw several folks working "Natural Selection" and saw two folks get it, but it's super fun and wanted to share. I'd like to hear more about the arete though!

Maybe the toughest V3 dyno? The first dyno is akward and tough to snag, doable, but tough. Then the second move is no easy task either. One of the best boulders I have ever seen. We will be back for this one for sure.

We always did a deadpoint from the crimps to the large jug on the right, matched, then moved up the rail to the finish. I guess dyno'ing just makes for more radness! The right side of the Falcon goes, but as you move further out the lip, the rock becomes suspect. We moved until the rock deteriorated and mantled up.

Dang Jesse! I didn't know the dead point was possible. Grizwald, it's definitely a fun problem! I don't grade things well, so any input would be great. I definitely think that the second move is harder than the first, the first move just feels more "heady" to me. Maybe we'll see you out there next time!
