Backer Spit- 11d.

Description 

This route sit just below a natural runoff zone so the 5.10- upper half tends to be dirty and the bottom half can be a little slimy. However, it offers a challenging roof crux that is worth trying if you are looking for a short bouldery route.

Easy moves lead to a roof. Hard moves lead left under the roof to a tough undercling and some angular fins that get you to easier terrain. Enjoy grungy edges and cracks to the anchors at the right margin of the upper ceiling.

Location 

Just right of Wheatward Bound.

Protection 

Bolts and a two bolt anchor.
