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.

Classic K-bay climbing. A long arete with amazing exposure. When you start the climb you are allready a good 70 feet above the beautiful turquoise lake. Can be done as 2 pitches (Belay station on ledge to right of 7th bolt). However I recommend doing it as one long pitch (rope drag not too much of a problem as arete is reasonably straight). A 50m rope will get you there (just). Consistent climbing at the grade. This climb is a popular solo for the bold among us....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
