Another Back to the Future Wall classic, between No Rest for the Wicked (to left) and McFly (to right), this is a very nice, thin route.

Climb technically through the crux bulge at 1/3 height on small edges, a mono (brief not too tweaky) and sidepulls. It lets up slightly before tackling more technical, thin, face moves above.


7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Beautiful. The crux is probably more at the 2nd bulge just after the rest... two consecutive near-deadpoints to good pockets. The lower crux is hard, but you are fresh and there are more options. Gotta love The Bank! Nov 17, 2003

Incredible route. I though the most physically demanding moves were getting to the midway rest. May 5, 2015

Fantastic route. Crimp crux down low than shallow pocket crux up high. Shelf, oh yeah! Dec 19, 2015

This thing felt very difficult for 12c, IMO, worlds harder than Surreal Estate, The French Are Here, etc. Either way, it was cool, although quite fingery. Jan 23, 2017

The top half is some of the best pure pocket pulling at Shelf. I vote for the true crux being the bottom half, although I watched it done 4 different ways. Hard 3rd clip.... Feb 28, 2019
