Rap from double BRs on small ledge to semi-hanging belay off single ringbolt (back it up with rap rope or clip 2nd bolt with long sling). Start with 5m of easy slab to diabolical roof move then easy jugs and finally a short compact section of pumpy steep pockets just left of easy crack.

The easiest bolted escape route from the Fisho ledge. Climb first bolt of Walking on Sunshine, then mantle up onto small ledge on the left. Walk along it (clip bolt with long sling) then up long grey bolted wall which is surprisingly steep and pumpy. Att the top finish left of the last bolt. Belay off double RB on the 2nd ledge above the topout.

19 Walking on Sunshine

Like nothing else at the Point - a classic steep well bolted adventure. The finish is an exhilarating steep across onto the giant overhung proboscis visible from kilometers away. To access walk south under cave to edge of cliff & belay off two carrots (bring bolt plates). Undercut start then after first bolt trend right, pull thru the steep stuff then keep going right stepping over the void to finish.

21 Ying Yang

About 30 mtrs past Orange wall locate the 2 rap bolts above a short orange wall about 10 mtrs high with bolts..(this is pitch 2) Continue rapping down clipping the bolts otherwise you WILL be in outta space...

The hanging belay is fairly out there so be confident with exposure..

Climb up and out over the roof (crux).. Falling here, it's best to be lowered down to start again.. Maybe carry prussics
