Tricky slabbing and sustained face climbing up the orange streak between The Sublime and the Beautiful and San Pornando. Once an intimidating mixed climb on carrots, it's now been retrobolted into a stellar sport climb. Linking P1 and P2 (requires a 70m rope) makes for a stunning pitch of Blueys face climbing.

Start: Starts 4m right of 'Colosseum Corner', slightly down the hill at Belay Bolt.

  1. 20m (24) Tricky start through overlap, then easier climbing up to hard crux just below anchors (8 bolts + anchors).

  2. 40m (25) Thin moves off belay, then up grey and orange streak moving slightly right through small overlap, then back left and up slab to anchors (9 bolts + anchors).

  3. 10m (16) The easy, chossy final pitch up to shared anchors with TSatB or Topout to Tree Belay (1 bolt + anchors).

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.
