Two pitches of wonderful wall climbing. First pitch is a good single pitch sport route with lower-off, 2nd pitch is a much bigger affair - a 50m wall of sustained edges and slopers, in dire need of rebolting.
Start at the 2nd line of rings left of Ben Trovato's p1 crack, starting up tree.
25m (23) One of the best pitches on the wall. Intricate face climbing finding a line of weakness amongst blankness. Clamber up tree for a few metres to clip high RB and horizontal break. Launch onto the wall and weave upwards to triple bolt lower-off.
50m (28) Really awesome climbing on thin edges with a long vertical crux move to undercling a shallow flake! The 10th bolt has been replaced on this pitch (which presumably tells you where the crux is), but the rest are unrecessed rings and potentially bad. There is no loweroffs, so you either have to top out and belay off a tree, or take your chances lowering off a single ring.

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.
