I did the route about 8 yrs ago not knowing if it had been done or not. I asked Matt Tcholl and Andy R. about the route. From what I remember, Kieth Anderson originally climbed it by traversing into Paradigm and then back left to the 3rd bolt or something. I didn't know this beta when I lead it and just went straight up the bolt line. Apparently, no one had done that previous. I think that's how most people do the route now... For what ever reason, I never was able to truely confirm what was what. So I guess there are two different ways to climb it. I was told that Kieth and Jeremy M. put the bolts in. I know in previous years many holds have chipped away, broken and changed. It may not even be the same route as back then. Either way, I remember it being a pretty fun route if you're into crimpin.

I broke off one of the better crimps when I did it a few years ago. Early this year I went back to try Matt's link-up into Paradigm Shift, but found the start to be a lot more difficult and blank. Not quite as fun anymore.

Bummer. I remember the start being pretty cool and dynamic...
