Routes in Sixth Canyon (aka Paradise Crags)

King Charles T 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c

Description

The northernmost canyon on the Wheeler Crest, due west of the community of Paradise. The canyon described as Sixth is actually two separate drainages that form a wide "V".

Only a few recorded routes exist in these broad canyons, as well as the crags just to the north. These include Botanists Holiday III 5.7 (south fork), Bush the Imbecile III 5.11a on Tranquility Wall, 4 More Shopping Days IV 5.10b on The Big K Mart Formation (both in North Fork), King Charles IV 5.11a (northern crags), and at least one other route adjacent to KC.

Getting There

From the north edge of Paradise, a rough high-clearance dirt road leads west to Ainslee Meadow. Park here and walk cross country towards the broad mouth of Sixth Canyon. For King Charles, head straight up the gully at the back of Ainslee Meadow. Allow 2-3 hours for these approaches.
