Latin for "situated below something else". This 60m high cliffline is located below the main cliffline of Sublime Point. It is mostly vertical on good grey rock, similar to parts of Piddington. It is very rarely visited.
Access issues inherited from West Face (Main Area)
There are private houses directly above this cliffline - try not to be too noisy, especially in the carpark.
Descend the usual track to the main wall of Sublime Point (the Middle Cliffs). From the route Choc Chip Chai follow a faint/rough track steeply downwards for about 150m until the track veers right at top of cliffline. Instead of going right, bush bash left (south) above top of cliffline for about 50m to base of crag. The bottom of the crag is steep and vegetated, a bit tricky to walk around.
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.
History is a bit of a mystery. There are a handful of recorded routes from the mid 60s, and some evidence of activity in the late 70s and 80s. There are three giant carrots with homeade hangers on the lower section of the wall right of Reality Check. Mikl and Giles deny it was them.
