The impressive buttress above Paradise is home to a pair of infrequently climbed routes. There is little doubt that if this buttress was anywhere else in the world it would be covered in quality climbs since the rock is of great quality. The descriptions here are from the 1994 guide. Approach - Scramble up grassy ledges and small outcrops from the area above Paradiset Main Cliff from where the crack of Vågarisset can be easily seen. Descent - As for Myggpillaren - see page §§§.
