Comments: Fun route! I did this little gem for the first time today. There is a lot more climbing on this than it looks from the ground. Great moves up top, solid gear right where you need it.

Comments: I replaced one of the anchor bolts on this route after pulling the old one out by hand back in 2005 or so. Be careful, inspect the bolts when you climb.

Comments: Its been a long time since I've been on this route, but if I remember correctly you can get some small gear to help protect the early parts of the route.

Comments: 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 :)

Comments: One of my all-time favorites in the gorge. It keeps throwing all sorts of weird stuff at you the whole time. Take a few long runners for the end of the route traversing to the belay.
