big crack climb, use of the arete is off. Traverses right past two ledges and turns into a harder finger crack up to the bridge. Bring large cams (3,3.5 camalots), hexes and large brassies- small nuts for the finish.

Best climb at backbone! The top has a short move that is a little tougher tha a 5.7, but overall the climb is pretty easy.
