Description Suggest change

Backporch is the finger of rock directly behind Frontporch. It can be found in the 2nd tier of rocks on Dinosaur mountain. This finger like tower has an V-shaped overhang on its east face. There couple trad routes in the 5.6-5.7 range and a sick, 5.13, roof problem, The Five Year Plan, on the west side.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the Porch Alley trail as described for Frontporch. The trail seems to branch on the south side of Frontporch. Take the left hand branch, since the other faint trail goes behind Frontporch. Follow this trail which heads back to the north after you are above Lost porch. Lost porch is a small Flatiron that is hidden behind Frontporch. This trail will lead you to the base.
