Breakdown in paradise is located to the right of Moscow on the Red Wall. The lower half of the climb starts on lower angled rock that moves into a textured face full of small pockets.
Cruise up the first three bolts before climbing reaching the pocketed face. From here you can either get sucked in left or stay close to the bolt line. We opted to stay close to the bolt line in case of a fall. The climbing out of the textured face onto the upper portion of the climb uses less than positive and insecure moves to between good holds. This is a climb worth doing if you are in the area.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
