An amazing climb, one of my favorites I've done at RRG, or anywhere for that matter. The holds are an amazing combination of pockets, crimps, pinches, and underclings. And it is one of the most picturesque climbs as well.
Now downgraded to 13a if you use the no hands rest below the 4th? bolt. which judging from chalk alot of people do. I used it as it made sense to downclimb two moves and stand on the ledge rather than have my feet a foot above it while resting. If you want 13b credit then the ledge should be avoided.
An extension "Paradise Regained" continues above the no hands rest at the anchors. It is rumored to be a stiff 13b on its own.
