The Main Area consists of all the boulders found at the base of the hill, from the Millennium Falcon Boulder on the eastern end to the Cave boulder and the large Easy Flake Boulder to the West. The rest of the problems are found on the Ridge, the 20-30 foot cliff band and accompanying boulder at the top of the hill. Many good moderate problems are found in Main Area, notably The Millennium Falcon, an area classic.

Kody working the first dyno on Natural Selection.

Natural Selection V3 6A  CO : Grand Junction Area : ... : Falcon Block
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....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
