This climb is in 10 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
A Terrible route, the first half of it was a mix between choss (blocks one foot across) held in loose earth, which come loose and the shape of the crag and location of the start means these hurtle at your belayer if you even breath in their general direction. if you survive that the upper part is nice enough, nothing special, and then you top out to open grass and absolutely zero to anchor to other than a sitting belay, which you don't want as you want to be able to see your very vulnerable second. I used a single line 30 meters back from the edge to the nearest tree, not an ideal belay by any stretch (stretch being operative) and then you need to work out how to get down again.... not a route that's worth doing give the almost infinite better options at this crag.

I have recently cleaned this route, there are some good cracks for gear higher up and a lot of the loose rock has gone.the next thing to do is to clean a walk way through the mud above Backing Up so that the two routes can be combined. (if you should wish to do so!)

Lots of loose rock. Not recommended. Once on the slab, follows the line of a long, shallow borehole on improving rock. Best descent: abseil down Balch's Slide.
