In front of Voddoo buttress and Looking Glass wall.
Access issues inherited from Arapiles
Approach the left hand side as for 'Voodoo' buttress and then sidle around the front.
It's also quite easy to approach the right hand side by walking around the left side of the 'Death Row Pinnacle' to a small pad that goes across to the right side of Dead Point Wall, near the U-shaped gully.
The scrub in front of the wall is fairly thick so it is best not to walk directly up to the face.
Getting off the top is difficult.
Ethic inherited from Arapiles
Mount Arapiles is first and foremost a trad climbing area. The few sport climbs tend to be in the higher grades where no natural pro is available.
Bolting, particularly retro-bolting, is discouraged and should only be undertaken after extensive consultation with the local climbers, first ascensionists, etc. Inappropriately placed bolts have been chopped.
Do not chip the rock.
Look after the park.
Stick to the paths.
Don't disturb the wildlife.
Routes near peregrine falcon nesting sites are closed in the spring.
Minimise the impact of your camping (fuel stoves not fires, take your rubbish with you, etc).
