  • Description 

    The Summit Knob of Bhakti Point is the large block of rock high above the Plotinus Wall.

    Two new sport routes were established here in 2004 by Vaino Kodas and Mary Zuvela.

    L->R:

    A. NE Gully, 4th, gear.
    B. The Talon, 10, gear.
    C. Sport Crystal, 11, 1p, bolts.
    D. English Immersion, 12-, 1p, 70', bolts.
    E. Flight of the Bumbly, 11, 1p, 70', bolts.
    F. West Ridge, 6, gear.


    Getting There 

    The best approach is to hike west up the steep slope next to the Plotinus Wall and then scramble up to a notch overlooking North Boulder Creek and Upper Dream Canyon. Then climb a large left-facing corner (3rd/4th class) out of the notch to a projecting tree (this tree provides for a convenient rappel on the descent). Once on top, continue walking east about 100 feet to the Summit Knob. Also, from the previously described notch, more routes can be found on the Notch Wall by dipping down about 50 feet into the steep gully that leads down to the creek. At the very bottom of this gully is the Classic Cliff, but if this is your destination it is best approached from below, by hiking up along the river, or from Upper Dream Canyon.
