4 out of 5 stars Great first climb at Shortoff

Definitely worth the approach though topping out on Paradise Alley felt more 5.8

4 out of 5 stars Fun.

Swung leads. I led p1 or more? Topo in NC Selected is confusing about how this meets up w Paradise Alley. But, easy enough to follow the natural line. Staying left in the crack on p1 works well.

5 out of 5 stars Nothing false about it

This was my 1st time at Shortoff,this is a stunning climb. 3 1/2 pitchs . Loose rock @ crux (1st pitch),but what a great surprise @ the top of the 2nd. the 1st part of the 3rd is easy but slightly past vertical makes it a real Gem then another beatiful little plateau @ the top.The last 1/2 pitch is a little tough or move 8' right of the crack and it's more like a 5.5. Great for summer as it,s almost all shade.
