After passing some scree in the slot recess, find a small saddle between the Original Wall tower like feature and this right facing corner route. Belay in this saddle from a belay bolt.

Climb a cruxy and strenuous start until it is possible to trend left to some final face moves and a two-bolt belay. 5.8+, 25m.

Hobble Creek offers much, from fishing, numerous great riverside campsites, awesome golf, and of course rock climbing, all with a sense of isolation and tranquility.


What a beautiful canyon! Park below the crag, just off to the left (north) of the Hobble Creek Canyon road. Walk up a worn trail for a short distance until it ends, but then seek a faint ridge line that eventually and steeply leads to the slot recess. Some time was spent refurbishing the trail. Back Of The Wall is located in an obvious slot recess up a right facing dihedral that is behind the tower -like formation where the older 80's era routes exist. Rappel the route for the obvious descent or walk off.


QDs for 6 bolts and small selection of mid sized Camalots are optional. A removable bolt (KNOT) was also placed, but is not obligatory.
