Description 

BESIDE THE POINT 5.10c ** 80'’ M (9b)
From the top of a large greenish boulder at the base of the SW face of Windy Pt. (about 30'’ up and left of "No Exit"), climb a sharp crack through somewhat fractured rock (first 20'’ gear protected). Rock improves for the upper half, and overall the route is very good, lots of variety and consistently good and challenging climbing (lots of cruxes but with big rests between). 2 ring anchors are on the lower edge of the upper W ridge/arête (a runout 80'’ scramble up the arête is possible to the top to join "On Point" for the final headwall, or traverse left 20' and climb the final pitch of "Turning Point" - 5.8).

Location 

At the SW corner of Windy Point.

Protection 

mixed (9 bolts, a few medium nuts or cams)
