Backslider Wall Rock Climbing
A little cliff above and right of Trundle Dome.
Same approach as for Trundle, passing it on the right. No actual trail, we stayed toward the right side of a large boulder field. there is a stream on the left side near Trundle and it is steep and swampy. You will come up to the left hand side of Backslider with a faint trail winding through steep wet grassy slope.
