Haven't done direct that I can recall, but you'll love Cold Fusion when you do it.

Awwww I meant to rate Point Beyond (five stars,) but it's not listed on ST...

Did Point Beyond Direct to get to Point Beyond in the Spring of 2015. I led P2 of the Direct and P1 of Point Beyond. Point Beyond Direct is a good one, while Point Beyond is super super fun, especially the first pitch!!!!!: )

First pitch of Point Beyond Direct was cool; second pitch was bushy... with lots of ants, making it a bit adventurous (hence not boring > : )

First pitch of Point Beyond is everything I imagined it to be, and more. Totally stoked getting to lead it. = ] The belay on top of P1 is on a cool feature. Nice spot! Second pitch had some water running at sections but could be easily bypassed or climbed through.

Point Beyond via Point Beyond Direct is a good combo and I recommend it. (Haven't tried Cold Fusion yet; 'd be glad to find out sometime. : )

Next time, we will go beyond Point Beyond...
