Description

Kwortzkliff is on the lower tier below Slash Wall.

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.

Descent notes

It is safest to abseil in from the top of Slash Wall. You can also scramble down a couple of dodgy gullies at the right hand end - NOT recommended.

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.
