Red Point Red Point ascent by: trenchdigger on 2006-11-17 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars Awkward but fun

Tough move getting into it, then some awkward stuff above. One little pod for a grey/red alien, tcu, or maybe a pink tricam before getting to the bolt about 25' up. Bordering on "R" getting to that bolt. But if you get situated properly, the moves aren't very hard there. I bouldered ont the start previously so it wasn't an onsight, but this was my first lead attempt.
