Description

Back Flip is a little harder than ScottÂ’s Pelotas, with big holds and some strenuous moves, especially near the top where it angles left a bit and shares anchors with Water Ballet. There is a bit of distance between the last bolt and the anchors. Make sure Water Ballet is clear before starting up.

Location

Follows the line of bolts to the right of the obvious water streak right of Water Ballet.

Protection

This route now has 4 bolts, one close to the anchor to prevent any awkward falls, shares anchor with Water Ballet.

I was with a guy who got his leg wrapped in the rope, couldn't make the final move and fell. He had somehow found a nice fingerlock up near the anchor and when his feet slipped, he took a nice chunk of meat off his thumb. He ended up upside down about 4' off the ground. Seemed spooky then, but not so much anymore. May 8, 2007
