Seleccio Anal is a link-up between "Seleccio Natural" and "Analogica".

FA: Ramon Julian, 21 Dec 2013

This is the route that stops at the first anchor when it crosses into "Digital System". It climbs the left side of the cave. The grade proposed changed a few times depending on the climber and broken holds.

La Fabela first section.

Start as Trio Ternura. Full route.

FA: Edu Marin, 2008

The direct version starts further left from "Trio Ternura" and is called Open Your Mind Direct. This one ends at the first anchor, without extension.

Set by Dani Andrada

The full length of Open Your Mind Direct with its 15m extension.

The grade of this route varied from an initial 9a+ to 9a/9a+ or even 9a. After the ascent by Mateusz Haladaj a hold broke and Ashima Shiraishi was the first to repeat the route after that. Since then the consensus is at 9a/9a+.
