Description

This is our pick as the best route on the rock. It has easily the best stone especially above the bulge. This is the 2nd to last route on the left (W) end of the cliff with a prominent roof at mid height. Wander past 3 widely spaced clips on moderate terrain to get to "The Business", a steep, tricky to read sequence to gain an underclinging traverse that leads left below the roof. Pull the roof, grab a shake, then do some fantastic crystal pinching up the slabby face above leads to the rap anchors (single rope 60m).

Protection

11 clips plus anchors.

It is possible to TR this fun problem after climbing Shag (5.7), which is just to the left. A one rope rap from the anchors on this route will put at the anchors of Backpaddle. Feb 20, 2002
