Red Point Red Point ascent by: jack.amaus86 on 2013-03-08 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars not soft

This route is 12 c when you compare it to salty dog, conflict, telegram for Mongo and fear of flying. I notice that camhead and jcinio downgrade just about every route in potrero. So potrero is graded in the new school, that means most routes feel easy for someone who is used to old school grades. If you climb in Eldorado, the gunks or Yosemite everything in potrero or boulder canyon or the red will feel soft. So let's keep this in mind when grading at a new school area. Club mex is 12c New school and 11d/12a old school

Great route. Kind of crimpy and powerful, but not complicated. If you are strong, and don't do anything stupid (like I did), just keep moving quick and it's not a bad onsight.
