Description 

Thrown Out Back is a route done tandem solo based on its easy appearance. One short crux move did appear with a good undercling for holds.

Start from just left of a small pine at the right of this section of cliff, and head up the leaning crack and flake system, consistently 30 degrees off vertical towards the right side. A short crux comes by good potential protection with an undercling and sidepull out to the left of the main crack. Improvise a belay up top, and walk off via a gully a few meters to the climber's right of the top-out.

This climb was done on a 'recovery day' after a thrown out back.

Location 

This ascends a diagonal, right-leaning crack and flake system starting at the right hand side of this section of cliff, perhaps 15m to the right of 'Back To Basics.'

Protection 

None was used on the FA, but a general light rack with a few longer slings would have sufficed to provide reasonable protection. Just beware that there are a few flakes along the way that could flex and release protection.
Walk off down an obvious gully a few meters to the South.
