Description 

Chimney in corner leads to nice jams and stems past a steep section. After that, enjoyable face climbing continues to the anchors.


Location 

The belayer needs to be on the ledge for this one. It's possible to lower to the ledge with a 70m rope, otherwise, lower to the anchors of "Monsters of Rock", then lower or rap from there.


Protection 

12 bolts

Measured from the start of the dihedral this route isn't quite 115 feet (I believe). My belayer, standing right at the start of the dihedral, had enough rope to lower me safely on a 60M rope.

Some friends and I literally stretched our 70m in order to belay from and lower all the way to the ground...left our rope thru the Paradise anchors and added a directional at MOR anchors in order to TR that route.

Definitely needs a 70m rope.
