Description

Sector of upper cliffline just North of The Poop Deck. The rock is mainly good however some of the holds may need brushing as they have not been climbed for a while. The climbs are fairly long and enjoyable.

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.

Approach

As for Windjammer. Head North 200 meters and arrive at the top of Escape Route and Terra Nulius.

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.

History

Mainly trad with a few bolts thrown in. A few new additions will be fully bolted and fun.

Bad rock.

Belay in the corner with a few medium cams. Up the wall to a big move, reachy. About 23 to the crux, then it gets hard for the last few moves. Take a bolt bracket.

Start off the corner ledge as for Terra Nulius. Clip first carrot of this and traverse the breaks past two ring bolts. Continue straight up through fantastic climbing and rock to a crux past the last bolt.
