Pitch 3 belay ledge, Sidewinder

Description 

Classic multipitch sport climb. Varied, exposed and sustained.

Pitch 1 (10.b)

Pitch 2 (10.b)

Shorter pitch. Sustained overhang with positive holds and a mantle finish. Keep moving and don't gas out. 4 bolts.

Pitch 3 (5.9)

Easiest pitch. Delivers varied climbing with some interesting moves including a low angle friction slab and a run out mantle to finish. 5 bolts.

Stunning views from the top, one of the highest climbs on The Point.
