Description

Brown and Gold wall just north of Windjammer. Gently overhanging all the way with a mixt of climbing styles. The rock is solid but does have a few sandy spots that brush up well. There is a mix of Trad, Sport and Mixed routes. Well worth a visit for a day or two.

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.

Project - Jake Noblett. Drilled holes but no bolts yet.

11
18 Capella Crax Trad 20m

The parallel cracks at the R end of the Poop Deck. Begin in the one on the R. Strenuously, then carefully until hard, sustained jamming is reached. Pike L into the next sandy horror, then more easily to top.

12
24 *** The Throne Sport 20m, 8

Starts 3m right of the crack. This climb is basically two boulder problems divided by a sit down rest in the middle. Ideal for strong climbers with no endurance.

FA: Jake Noblett, 2013

13
23 ** I Once Was A Cyborg Sport 22m, 8

Climb the chossy rooflet to good solid rock for the rest of the climb. Nice sustained climbing past plenty of bolts. Respect the small pebbles as you pass them as they will help you out.

FA: Jake Noblett, 2013

14
20 * Drifting Ashore Sport 22m, 8

As for previous route but break right at 2nd bolt and climb past another 5-6 bolts on cool rock to an awesome, spicy finish on the arete.
