DescriptionAs this route is the easiest on the point, it is where many people start, including us. Dropping down toward the ocean for the first time is a spectacular experience. Watch this climb when the sea is rough! Although this is also discussed in the guide, I did not heed the warning as well as I should have! As I was awaiting my partner after rappelling down to the anchors, I was hit by sea spray once and at another point a wave came right up and soaked my feet and climbing shoes! I had my partner build the anchor a couple of bolts higher than the intended belay and this worked well.
For someone climbing at their limit this route may feel somewhat run-out in a few sections. The climb starts with a few easier moves and then the route gets steep. Pull a few overhung moves with good holds. After the crux the route eases and becomes less than vertical, and the rock becomes sharp at the top.
