Supa fun, big sporty jaunt. Starts as for 'Colosseum Corner' and traverses across Giles route to big belay ledge left of arete. Up thin face left of the arete. Take about 12 draws and slings and stuff for the belays. A couple of cams on the 1st pitch can be handy. Can either top out (tree belay) or lower off down the route.

  1. 20m (18) Rising to the right, and upto obvious belay ledge.

  2. 35m (22) Launch up the thin wall. The money pitch !

  3. 20m (20) Can be linked from the 2nd pitch. Up over small buldge and continue to final headwall.

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 has been a lot of well protected sport routes added. This has been seen as controversial by some climbers who consider the crag a 'mixed' climbign venue.
