Very very rarely visited cliffline below the Main Middle Cliffs. Home to a few old trad routes. The base of this cliff is steep and rocky, making getting around tricky.
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.
Where the descent track reaches the Main Middle Cliffs keep going straight down on a rough bushwalkers track (it may be marked). It's only another 5 minutes further down.
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.
