Description

Climb to the first small ledge of Paradise Alley and move right to bolt. Clip bolt (doubles as first bolt on "Paradise Lost, which goes straight up) then move up and right past a brief section of chossy rock. Pull the funky move (# 4 Camelot here is nice) to the crack feature, and follow it through the overhangs and up a slab to belay at small ledge (sling). P-2 Continue straight up the buttress on stellar climbing for almost 200' to a large ledge and belay. P-3 Finish on "Paradise Alley". Note: The second pitch is one of the best 5.9 ropelengths around!

Location

This route climbs the funky orange colored arching crack feature to the right of "Paradise Alley".

Protection

Blue/green hybrid alien is usefull. Old style # 4 Camalot is also usefull. Bring one of the two, or both.

Great route. This section of Shortoff is a great place to get more routes in. You can climb the first pitch (business pitches) of Paradise Alley, Paradise Lost, and Paradise City to make for a more productive day. Toping out on whatever last one you do for a lunch break :) Aug 25, 2012
