This route is on an excellent section of the cliff (named Back To The Future Wall) with 4 or 5 other routes that got stellar ratings in the guidebook. It is a great place to spend a day. This is the easiest, with the others being hard 11s or easy 12s.

Back To The Future is easily identified by 2 huge pockets, side by side about 8 feet off the ground. This route has everything. It's not just a pocket-fest like many of the other routes at Shelf. The crux is about halfway up and ends in a huge bucket. The route is sustained and ends on the slabby sharp-as-hell rock that I found at the top of most of the routes at Shelf.


7-8 bolts to the anchors.
