The Pleasure Palace is a great little zone on the park's west side where you can tick off a handful of moderate routes that are fairly fun without having to leave a single area. Even better, half the wall is in the shade for the better part of the day. The downside is that many of the climbs are over not long after you leave the ground, especially on the left side of the cliff band where the shorter climbs live. Still, this is a great little zone that can offer solace, a view of Monkey Face and the Cascades.
Located on the west side of the park just pass (north) and uphill from the Mesa Verde Wall. If you approach from the south expect a long slog uphill from the Mesa Verde Wall on a decent trail that heads straight up. You can also walk up and over Misery Ridge and drop down into the Pleasure Palace. This is the more direct route but either way you have a nice little hike ahead.

Mad Rock decided to give the Flash 2.0 an upgrade with the release of the Flash 2018 model. Having been a fan of the Flash 2.0 for years as a solid gym shoe, it was hard to believe that the shoe could get much better while staying at the same price point, but Mad Rock did it.
