With Ariel. Ok route. Not overly challenging by Jtree standards. Kind of a fun start.

3 out of 5 stars Fun

Start was sketchy until the moves were figured out, then it was easy as pie. Fun route, kinda wanders.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: climbingaz on 2009-10-11 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars A must do!

I wasn't diggin' the protection for the first 10 feet or so, but everything else was bomber. The start seems harder than it is until you know the moves. A great climb.
