A fun little sport sector of VERY well protected face routes. The wall faces south west, so is in the shade until mid afternoon. It's possible to do a few routes here on the walk out when the main area is in the sun.

Access issues inherited from West Face (Main Area)

There is NO pubic toilet at the carpark, and the surrounding bush is already suffering from overuse as a bush toilet and tourist rubbish dump (the nearby residents don’t like people literally crapping in their backyards). The nearest public toilet is on the Leura Mall. There are private houses directly above this cliffline - try not to be too noisy, especially in the carpark.


At the bottom of descent where you turn right towards Sweet Dreams - instead turn left and follow the cairn for about 60m to this great little wall.

Descent notes

All routes have lower-offs.

Ethic inherited from West Face (Main Area)

Sublime Point is an old climbing area, with many routes dating from the 1950s and 1960s. Aid and mixed climbing was the fashion then, and the easier routes can be pretty bold for a modern climber. In the last 10 years there have been a lot of well protected sport routes added. This has been seen as controversial by some climbers who consider the crag a 'mixed' climbing venue.
