Description 

The Backstreet Wall sits on the climber's left side of Springer Gulch Wall. This wall faces west. Stewart Green does an excellent job of describing this wall in the new Falcon guidebook, "Rock Climbing Guide Colorado". It is sunny most of the day. The hike seemed pretty moderate from some of the South Platte slogs I've been on.

Getting There 

Drive 5.4 miles from the turn off into the canyon, and park at a lot just past the turn off for Springer Gulch Campground. The approach is 15-20 minute hike. There is a trail that heads back towards the Backstreet Wall. The trail peters out and we hiked the easiest way through the trees to the base of the climbs.

Get High Street 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CO : South Platte : ... : Backstreet Wall
This route is immediately to the left of Anything But The Fast Lane. I believe the crux is just getting started on the route. Right off the deck you move through a bulge/roof. There is a great hand jam if you can reach it. The start is easier if you are taller. Pull through the roof and climb up and left past horizontal cracks. The bottom of the route takes gear and the upper half of the route has 3 bolts to a two bolt anchor. This route finishes and the same anchors as [[Anything B...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
