Followed my buddy. Funky start, unless you're tall.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: mjwestla on 2010-07-11 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars back for the redpoint

chose to warm up on this for my big day of trying the area easy classic 10s. Set a nut to protect the boulder problem and pulled through much easier than last time I tried it. Casual after that.

Lots of new rockfall at the base of the route since my previous visit gave me pause initially while I tried to figure out if some crucial holds/flakes had been obliterated. Looks like it all came down from the mess of breakdown at the top in the gully leading to the Upper Tier. Lots of loose rock up there - be careful people!
