DescriptionThrown Out Back is a route done tandem solo based on its easy appearance. One short crux move did appear with a good undercling for holds.
Start from just left of a small pine at the right of this section of cliff, and head up the leaning crack and flake system, consistently 30 degrees off vertical towards the right side. A short crux comes by good potential protection with an undercling and sidepull out to the left of the main crack. Improvise a belay up top, and walk off via a gully a few meters to the climber's right of the top-out.
This climb was done on a 'recovery day' after a thrown out back.
LocationThis ascends a diagonal, right-leaning crack and flake system starting at the right hand side of this section of cliff, perhaps 15m to the right of 'Back To Basics.'
