  • Description 

    This is a fun and safe route with some interesting climbing and a powerful deadpoint move at the crux. It was put on hold for a few years following a neck injury back in 2009. The line is mostly bolt protected and has a stainless nut anchor to rap from in the dihedral if you don't want to top it out.

    P-1 Climb the mixed line up the face to an easy corner and a nut anchor rap, or belay if continuing up.

    P-2 Continue up corner to merge into the traversing pitch 2 of Paradise Alley.


    Location 

    Between the two paradise corners.


    Protection 

    Light rack. 4 bolts protect the meat of the climbing.
