Quality long and exposed slab climbing. Has been entirely rebolted in 2016. Let the games begin!

Access issues inherited from Point Perpendicular

Point Perp is located within a Navy Weapons Range. It is generally open during weekends and NSW school holidays though it is best to ring the rangers (02 4448 3411) to check first.

Ethic inherited from Point Perpendicular

Point Perp is predominantly a trad crag. There has been more bolting recently but this is a particularly contentious topic. A lot of the bolts are the traditional Aussie carrot and it would be a good idea to have at least half a dozen keyhole hangers before going to the Point for the first time.

Grade Route
18 Free the Nipple Trad 15m

Left most climb on VB Slab. Rap to massive ledge to RB and carrot belay. Up right of vertical seem. Take care clipping the 2nd carrot.

Can be used as an escape route for 'Passion Pop'

19 * Brewers Droop Trad 25m

Far left route starting off small ledge. Shares first few bolts with Mates. Mostly carrots, but bring some cams.

FA: Jason Lammers, 2016

17 * Mates Trad 25m

Up from the 2RB belay past a few carrots and then trad up the crack past another carrot towards the top.


Shared belay ledge as for 'Mates' The right route off the belay with some thin moves about halfway up the wall.

19 ** Prawn Sandwich Trad 32m

Rap from a single carrot (backup with any of the Army RBs that are all over the place here) to semi hanging belay above the big roof. Thin and sustained. Carrots and maybe a No3. Camalot in the easy section (or just run it out)

18 Whale Aid Trad 25m
19 Green Thunder Trad 25m
20 * Rick's Trick Trad 30m

Has a move and a RB over the bulge about half way up the wall. Semi hanging belay above the cave.

FA: Rick Phillips, 2016

18 ** One For The Whale Trad 25m
19 ** Whale of a Time Trad 32m

Belay off 2RB right down at lip of big roof, not the single RB at the small ledge. From the belay, up past a couple of wires to a carrot, mantle up on to the ledge and continue up the nice wall. Bring a few medium cams or run it out on carrots.

FA: Jason Lammers & Aleasha Way, 2016

17 A Nice Cold Fear Trad 25m
18 ** Alesha's route Trad 30m

Abseil off rings where shrubs suddenly come close to cliff. Must be close to a nice cold fear, but now sports bolts though a few cams needed to #3.

FA: aleasha Way & Rick Phillips, 2016

20 * Short Arms Deep Pockets Mixed 20m, 5

Shorter route on the right end of the slab, with a hanging belay above the cave.
