Natural Selection V3 6A  Colorado : 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 Colorado
