Description

Paradise Lost was approved as a new route by the Flatirons Climbing Council and Boulder OSMP in the spring of 2006. It climbs the beautiful South Face of the Red Devil, and starts two switchbacks below Hell Freezes Over. The climbing is steep and juggy on solid rock.

Paradise Lost gets direct midday sun, so is most pleasant in spring and fall. Be aware of poison ivy at the base, which is easily avoided.

Location

Paradise Lost is located above the first switchback on the climbers trail that jogs north just before reaching the Mallory Cave. Use the NCAR parking lot and Mesa Trail access to the Mallory Cave trail for the 45 minute approach.

Protection

9 bolts to a two bolt ring anchor. Bring a long sling for the third clip. This climb is rigged for a 60 meter rope.
