This route is something of a nemesis for me. Perils of Pauline begins just left of Nettlesome, climbing up benign terrain to a stance just beneath a slightly overhanging and mostly blank headwall, where the character of the route changes. Overcoming this short section is the crux of the climb and involves a series of moves to establish your right hand on a powerful and tiny side pull, then delicate and precise footwork to move your left hand up onto positive features. Once you are standing on top of the headwall, the difficulties are over. The crux is well protected, so even those of us with a low probability of success can venture up with little trepidation. This line can also be toproped after leading Nettlesome; both routes share an anchor.


Bolts, chained anchor.
