BETA PHOTO: The excellent slopers that make up Paradise Blend....


Start just right of the arete on large jugs, move left and up to a sloping rail. From this rail, move left into a right-facing sloper, then up to a huge jug up high. Avoid the starting holds of French Roast to the left. Not the best landing, so don't blow the move to the jug.


If you're facing the ocean, this problem is on an arete at the far left end of the Yard about 40 yards past the Extremist.


Pads, more than one is useful.

I don't really boulder v5 but I got this one and it didn't feel all that bad. Might be a reach thing, I'm 6'3. Hardest part was keeping my feet of the pads on the swing through.

Great problem, soft rating, more like a four. Good ego boost though

Definitely more like V3 or 4. I swear it used to be harder.

Once heinous but easy to see how it could get easier as it was always dirty as sin. While crimp problems will continue to get harder, slopers at the yard should get a lot better before they get worse, if it ever comes to that. Can't imagine how much traffic it would take to polish this rock.
