Description 

The most prominent feature on this crack bouldering cliff is the imposing Back Breaker Roof OW crack in the center. However, there are many other bouldering cracks and faces on both sides of the Back Breaker, which could be soloed but is more generally either TRed or else led.

Getting There 

Walk downhill across broad slabs until you come to north edge of the Forbidden Swamp. Traverse the 'swamp' until you come out the other side on polished slabs leading up to the base of the Back Breaker Cliff.
