Description

Back Off Crack is located on the far right side of Crankenstein wall. Look for a pair of climbs that start of small boulders at the base of the wall and share and anchor. Back Off Crack is the crack climb on the right with the lone bolt about two-thirds of the way up. Climb the solid crack with great holds to the bolt. Large stoppers and hexes are helpful, but you can also run it out to the bolt. At the bolt, head left on thin face moves (crux) that lead to a shallow dihedral. The holds and clipping stance at the anchors are pretty good. One anchor is on the face and the second is above the rim. Be prepared to rap off.

Protection

Large stoppers/hexes protect the crack, one bolt protects the face moves at the top. Two bolt anchor.
