Climber starting up "On Point" on Windy ...


ON POINT 5.10a *** 100’ F (10b)
A truly great route with a variety of climbing and great exposure; sustained but with good rests. From the belay ledge in the middle of The Direct Route step off the left end of the ledge, first down and then up, and climb around the left side of the roof to the top via the left side of the upper arête. An interesting variety of moves (although somewhat meandering) leads to the 2 ring anchors on the top of the arete (better to rap the route than lower over the sharp edge on top).

The crux moves are undoubtedly harder for a short climber...


a 2nd pitch variation of the Direct Route.
