Natural Selection climbs the unusually smooth wall on the north side of the canyon proper. The wall is split by two thin cracks; one moving up, right and back left and another moving left, right and left again- this is the line of Natural Selection. Thin crack climbing with glassy feet make this tall problem a formidable challenge.

Thanks for clearing that up, Tom. Although the Anasazi likely beat Joe, Lynn, John, and Richard to this climb. Eeeyaaa! Apr 27, 2012
