I think the point is that this is a fun moderate and certainly not your typical 5.8 sport route. Most lines of this grade (from my experience) are obvious and not sequential. What’s the Point will challenge the moderate lead climber with a series of delicate moves, requiring some thought to accomplish. Start in the center of the south face and move up along the bolt line, finishing just up and right of the anchor for Crown of Thorns. Rappel to descend.

Pretty fun but very short. Also be careful when approaching the right side of the 4th bolt because some of the flakes are getting lose. Aug 26, 2011
