Paperboy Centerfold is the obvious dihedral about 20' right of Garden Party. A face climbing start leads to sustained fingerlocks and liebacking. There are bolts on top for toproping this climb. An excellent route for getting a pump - especially if running laps.


Lots of stoppers and small cams. Probably best to toprope because of the flaring crack and soft limestone.

This is a great climb. Good warm up or last climb of the day. Good moves and good holds all the way up.

A really good route to warm up on. If you pay attention to your feet, you really dont have to lieback much at all.

for a little change of pace it would be possible to link paperboy into blockhead, get established about 30ft up on paperboy and then traverse right, right below the 3rd bolt of blockhead, clip it and finish for blockhead. the traverse can be protected by a purple c4 if one feels inclined. i aided the line today and haven't done it free but it would probably clock in around 5.9
