Looking back on the pitch 3 traverse


This is THE climb in the Blue Mountains of Australia! 5 pitches of fun, easy climbing that both novices and professionals will enjoy. The climb tops out to a path leading back to the parking lot so no rappelling needed! Crux is the exposed traverse on Pitch 3. There is a 5.9 variation on the 5th and final pitch if you head left up the bolts instead of climbing the large crack. This variation is extremely fun and very exposed. Amazing view of the Three Sisters after you head up Pitch 3.


Sublime Point, Blue Mountains, Australia


Gear up to 2". Bolt hangers for the carrot bolts. No fixed anchors.

Great climb even in the wet cold! The approach is amazing and the exposure on the wall is even better. Pitch 2 you definitely need to bring gear because the 2 carrots aren't enough to protect the pitch. The traverse is amazing especially when you take a second to look down and get a bit scared. We linked pitch 4 and 5 which was well protected and an easy link. Pitch 6 has a few variants, the "easy" 5.6 face is super run out so I recommend the original finish (corner with big cams) or the harder finish on the left (more bolts).

Great feet the whole climb and a definite classic in the Blue Mountains.
