Paradise is one of the first walls you will see on your way to the Library. The routes are trad leads, with a few supplemental bolts drilled where pro is scarce.
In Mocanaqua near the bridge, park by the sewage treatment plant at the end of the road. From the parking lot, with the plant on your left, walk back to your right over the train tracks past the gravel. Take the 4WD path to the right, and keep to the right until you see paradise on your left.

Power through a bulge approx 10 feet off the ground at the first bolt, then follow the bolt line straight to the last bolt of I-beam. The top of the route is sustained and fun but the crux for me was definitely at the first bolt. There are multiple ways to finish this route but I feel this is way makes the most sense. ...[more] Browse More Classics in PA

They used to throw quarry/coal millings down these cliffs to dispose of them, as such, there's a great deal of loose rock at the top and there is no top access. Helmets are very advisable here as projectiles can come down even when noone's at the top. It's also worthwile to have some webbing and rap rings handy as the anchor situation isn't always good.
In general, the rock is solid and takes good gear. There are a number of old questionable bolts that could use replacement.
