Description 

The Point is a spectacular section of climbale rock jutting out into the lake. Most of its routes are long and exposed, starting from a thin ledge that is 70ish feet above the lake. There are a few great sport routes here, but trad predominates. Most routes are 2-3 pitches, although some can be linked. The highest concentration of routes at K-Bay.

Getting There 

From the campsite follow the track past the long drop toilet. Keep following the track along the shoreline then inland slightly. 15 minutes or so gets you to the first route of the point.
