East of Paradise

Climbed "East of Paradise" yesterday. It is in fine shape despite taking some beating from the sun. It won't be good for much longer if this weather holds. A worthwhile route if you are looking for something other than your umpteenth ascent of Blue, Green or Pine Creek Falls. 2 ropes are recommended. The walk around the first pitch mentioned in "Winter Dance" is NOT recommended. There is a good trail leading up the slope from the old mining road. The route is off to the right as you hike up the slope with the first pitch barely visible as you get close to it. We walked back down the mining road directly back to the car and it looks like "All Mixed Up" is in but due to the trees in front of it, hard to tell what shape.
