Carpenter Ridge - Paradise Wall
> Naturita & Paradox Va…
This is a long cliff comprised of the same Wingate sandstone encountered at Indian Creek. Although not as well fractured, the cliff is 350' tall and provides some good multi-pitch routes.
From Bedrock, drive north a short distance and turn right on 950 road. When this Ts out, go left (X). The road turns right and becomes 900 road. When the road turns left again (V), turn right onto a poor dirt road. Bear left at a junction. Drive until your vehicle refuses to deal with the increasingly rugged terrain. A high clearance vehicle gets you a little closer but not that much. Camping is available along this road.
The road eventually turns into a climber's trail, well cairned, leading to the cliffs. The approach is obvious and involves about 800' of elevation gain.
