You can place a #4 in numerous spots on this route if you wish, so it's not totally useless. There is a possible alternate P4 that takes a crack line straight up from the far left of the large ledge. This pitch is seldom climbed, obviously, as there is a lot of flakey lichen on it. There is a half pulled out ring piton on this pitch in the middle of a right traverse with an undercling crack. Rejoin the original route just below the 5.9 pitch via a runtout 5.5ish traverse,

Did P1 of Great Zot again and traversed to the rotten ledge to P2. Partner lead P2 and gave the lead to me. Combined P3-P4 and continued down to the anchor at the Dirty Deed gulley. We used the Vertigo rappels instead of Dirty Deed. Very nice climbing up on the final arete. Spectacular.

Lead P2. Be comfortable with runouts in excess of 45 ft.

Lead P1. A very enjoyable and sustained pitch. Long. I ran out of stoppers that would fit the most common crack, which was about 1/4 inch or larger.

P1 is very thin at the beginning. Be prepared for insecure face moves mixed with large huecos and plates. P2 is a breeze in comparison. Nice roof move that isn't as bad as it looks due to good holds for hands and feet.

I had to hang while leading the 5.8, which was unnerving to do as I couldn't sink a good hand jam after four attempts. If you power through on edges on this move, you can nab a huge flake off the the right instead of messing with the jam. Followed the other pitches cleanly and with much satisfaction.

The second pitch is a nice, sustained hand crack that takes #2 Camelots. Bring at least two. A #3 will slot in after a widening of the crack near the top. Traverse left at the top to finish and don't forget to look to your left for footholds on the left side of the book.

The crux pitch is very nice. If you want a mountaineering experience scrambling up grassy ledges with a few actual rock pitches and a great knife-edge summit, this is for you.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: timstich on 2004-07-11 (View Climbing Log)

The ascent up the gulley between Sharkstooth and the Petit Grepon is quite an outing in and of itself. We picked a point on the wall to start the route that seemed to be near the line. The rock on this wall has quite a bit of hard, gray lichen, moss, and patches of grassly ledges. In addition, there is a ton of loose rock, so occassionally downclimbing to pick a new way is mandatory. I suspect this route does not see a lot of traffic. The qualtiy of the pitches improves the higher you get. Trend right to avoid the imposing wall directly above. We connected with the East Gulley at it's second rappel station via a sloping ledge. For the descent to Sky Pond, we used the Easy Gulley to the saddle and then walked over to the Petit's rappels. One 60 meter rope will not get you entirely down, but it will get you within 150 of the lower ledges. We created a rap station with red webbing and a green cord below the South Face rap station with the slung rock projection and the bolts underneath. I downclimbed the easy diagonal notch from the lowest ledge.
