Camp, Horseback, and Rock Climb

Sitting high above the road, the routes at Paramount offer great exposure and relief from the afternoon summer sun. Chuck Oddette, Steve Reiser and Jed Miller established the routes from 1989 to 1990. While not the hardest climbing around, Paramount is home to great lines in the 5.9 - 5.10 range a perfect place for the budding lead climber. All routes except Fly By Night, Positively Negative, and Spraypaint can be done with a 50-meter rope.
