5 out of 5 stars One of the best aretes anywhere...

Beautiful line, I'm glad I managed to onsight it. Did it as one long pitch. Bring a Metolius #1 TCU to protect the moves off the boulder.

5 out of 5 stars Small holds, big moves

I think this climb is a bit easier if you're over 6 feet tall...

Red Point Red Point ascent by: rexcarrs on 1995-07-18 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars A stout route for the grade!

The first pitch is 5.11 c/d. The scary second pitch is 5.12A and is scary to lead. There is s 25'runout at the top, on 5.10C moves.
