Back Door to Paris
Submitted by: nickaretz
DescriptionThis climb is OK and worth doing if you are waiting to get on another line. It follows jugs and crips to a small roof where the anchors are.
LocationThis is last sport line before B3. It starts left of a large detached block.
ProtectionThe bolts are not to far apart but they can be hard to reach from the jugs.

This is the start of Back Door to Paris, right hand climber and Are the Pies Fresh?, the left climber.
The large detached block to the right is the ledge for B3 and Perforator. You need to climb that OW between the wall and the detached block to access the ledge to start those two climbs.

A good line with some sporty clips. Use the big block if you need some help on the first clip. There is a big jug just above the anchors which makes for a better clip rather than clipping from below and right (like I did), which is ackward. Big reaches and sporty moves make it worthwhile.
