Backslide. A weird filter got turned on somehow.

Description 

A fun, unusual sport route that includes a couple chimney sections at the bottom and the top. Mind the crumbling rock on the left side as you start.

Location 

The last route on Roadside Rock. You'll pass Computer Girl and then come to a roof that has several bolts over the lip. Backslide is the rightmost route running along the gentle roof and the left-facing layback.

Protection 

6 bolts to hangers.

This is a fun route, but if its climbed as a chimney (and not by climbing the slab right of the chimney), its a LOT easier than its stated grade. The crux is probably getting to the first clip.
