Description

This route is one of my personal favorites in the gorge. It's not quite as hard as it looks. Start as for "Paradise City". Clip first bolt from the ledge and climb straight up the main wall past 3 bolts to the overlap/roof. Pull the overlap on an incredible rail and clip the last bolt. The move above is slightly harder now since a hold broke (2018). Crank up into the seam and hang on just a little longer to the easier face above. Move up and traverse right to the same belay as for "Paradise City". P-2 Continue up "Paradise City", or climb the easier large dihedral out right.

Location

Climbs the steep and excellent wall just to the right of "Paradise Alley".

Protection

5 bolts and a standard rack
