Long wall climbing. Ewbank's original aid line turns out to be an absolute cracker of a free route.

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.

Route History:

  • First Ascent: John Ewbank & Bob Smith @ 15 M.3, 1964

  • First Free Ascent: Neil Monteith (p1), 2011
