The Backstreet Wall sits on the climber's left side of Springer Gulch Wall. This wall faces west. Stewart Green does an excellent job of describing this wall in the new Falcon guidebook, "Rock Climbing Guide Colorado". It is sunny most of the day. The hike seemed pretty moderate from some of the South Platte slogs I've been on.
Drive 5.4 miles from the turn off into the canyon, and park at a lot just past the turn off for Springer Gulch Campground. The approach is 15-20 minute hike. There is a trail that heads back towards the Backstreet Wall. The trail peters out and we hiked the easiest way through the trees to the base of the climbs.

Start right of a fir tree (the fir tree is actually touching the rock). Mantle up and face climb through some friable rock. Follow a bolt line up to the roof. Watch for birds and "what have yous" in the crack that is under the roof. Clip a bolt that is at the roof and pull up and over. There is a bolt that is back about 2 feet from the roof as you pull over. Take a #1 and #2 Camalot to use in the hand crack above the roof that you will move though to get to the anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
