Paul's route is a good warm-up for the Moore Wall and a great introduction to the style of the area: long steep faces, crimpy horizontals and techy footwork.
Climb a blocky moderate start past 2 bolts to a ledge then tackle a perfect thin face past 11 more bolts. A detached pillar to the left provides relief when the moves start feeling tough for 5.9. The last 2 bolts force you on the face away from this feature for a full value finish.


This route it the furthest left on the Moore Wall. It's the 3rd bolted line to the left of the giant dihedral. Look for a hanged at the lip of a triangular block, that's Ray of Light. Paul's Route is the next one to the left.


13 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

I just did this route yesterday (Aug 12, 2012) and some recent rockfall has sheared off one of the upper bolts (8th bolt?). You can get a sketchy small cam off to the left, but the bolt needs to be replaced.
