So, I guess the paradox of Paradox Wall is which route listed in Chatt Steel doesn’t exist. One of the following routes doesn’t exist: See the Egress, Vividly Grey, Hidden in Plain Sight, or The 3 G’s. The book lists four routes where there are only 3. My guess is Vividly Grey is also Hidden in Plain Sight. As others have noted, count from left to right and you’ll get the right route. Apr 18, 2019
