Description

This is a naturally protected line to the right of Three Little Birds that starts in a chimney of sorts and gains a small, right-facing dihedral before ending at the anchors for Three Little Birds. It is named for a great little clinic, "Back on Track" run by Susie Finley, PT, which focuses on canine rehabilitation and occasional climber rehabilitation. Originally the clinic focused on greyhound rehabilitation.

Start in a chimney, pop out onto a ledge, move up and left with a reach (crux) on thin gear. Gain a cleared off ledge on the right, climb the dihedral, and angle left to the bolt anchors.

Location

This is to the right of Three Little Birds.

Protection

A rack from black Alien to a #1 Camalot, a large wire, and a #4 c4 Camalot works (just before exiting the chimney). A double of yellow TCUs helps.

Not PG-13.
Use some brass nuts if need be.

No need for a #4 IMO. Love the route, tho. Sep 17, 2015

This route is ok if you want to place gear. I used a 00 C3 as my smallest piece. I did not see a place for a #4 C4. I placed 5 cams on the route with my biggest one being a #1 C4. You can place more if you want. The crux is short, about a body length. Jun 19, 2015
