They don't make them like this anymore, and that's probably a good thing. Another hybrid bush-walk slash rock-climb done by the 50s pioneers of choss and doodle. "Filthy. A vertical bushwalk. Take a trowel." [JME]
Start: Starts 2m left of The Cramps at vertical vegetated corner.
20m (-) Scrub to ledge and tree belay.
20m (10) Scrub to ledge, dirty crack and up to bush.

15m (-) Filthy chimney on left.
- 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.
First Ascent: Cooke & Cunningham, 1958
