The Back 9 is located at the far right end of the Golf Wall cliff. The routes at this end of the crag are generally in the 5.11 to 5.12 range. A couple easier and/or harder routes can also be found. The Back 9 routes start by where the large tree used to be, just beyond the Country Club Cave.
Follow the approach trail from US 550, when the wall is reached head right past the Front 9
(Country Club Cave) to a large tree that marks the start of the Back 9.

Gator Pond starts with some stout slab climbing and then goes up steep jugs, slopers, pockets, and crimps ending fighting over a bulge to the anchors of Putt Putt.It's a little bit of a squeeze job, but I really enjoy the climbing on this route.Poop notes: after the 2nd bolt there is a poop den. I cleaned a lot off; however, it can be totally avoided with choosing holds correctly....[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado

The route that shares the start with Get Off The Cart was originally named Top Flight and was rated hard 12 for crux at top. This was put up in 1994. I believe the direct start has now been done which is maybe why the name has been changed. I worked the direct start numerous times while establishing this climb, but the solution never came to me, and now I am much older and don't climb that hard. With the direct start, I think this would clock in at high 13.
