DescriptionA sweet back is a hobo "sheik", and one who merely samples hobo living. This route features excellent, BOULDERY movement on good holds, and it's a great sports action route. For the grade it's some of the better dacite climbing around, and the rock quality is excellent.
Begin as for Tin Roof Sunday up the dihedral passing one bolt on the left, then continue up and left to a plank rest. Long draws on the first two bolts off the ledge will help your rope flow. When ready, punch through 25' of semi technical bouldering to a decent rest below the obvious bulge.
At the bulge, move up and left to some square cut jugs, then hard right to get the huge sidepull pinch, and then back left to the arête to gain the necessary compression. A few slaps up the arête should allow you to get your feet over the bulge. The next set of jugs and moves are priceless and it's wide open air at that point.
