This route climbs the center of the steep wall right of pitch one of "Paradise Alley". Climb up to ledge and traverse right to bolt. From here move up and left to another bolt and into crux. Continue up to 3rd bolt under bulge. Pull bulge via cool handraill and crank past last bolt to a seam. Continue up seam and small gear to easier terrain. Continue up and traverse right around corner to a ledge and belay (there are rap slings here 110' down). P-2 Climb straight up the wall about 200' to ledge (excellent 5.9). P3 Climb an easy pitch to the top of the buttress. Last pitch is same as for "Paradise Alley".
You can rap down after the first pitch with a 60M. It just barely makes it to the ground with 'lightweight' rope stretch.
