Really good day out. Interesting climbing, some loose bits but it adds to the adventure as long as you're careful. Too many midges!!

Interesting day out, the route was described to us by a friend as loose, chossy, vegetated and hard to find your way up. All fair comments but they forgot to mention the midges, 21 bites on my right leg alone! Beware large loose blocks...

Paradise formed a great expedition when joined up with the top six pitches of Horned Crag Route. It was made all the more challenging by the peculiar nature of the climbing and the sack on your back. Do not understimate the pioneers the guidebook says. True.
