This is one of the few routes at backbone that can be lead on trad. Rock can be a little loose and dirty so make sure all gear is solid. A fall might result in a landing on the spire. A helmet is a very good idea. C4s, TCUs, and nuts will work well. Start on the jugs between the wall and the spire then move into the corner and follow it to the top. A pretty good route over all, just note that the climbing is sustained through the middle. Jan 17, 2015
