A steep red coloured wall which ascends from deep water - located below 'Kwortzkliff' at the end of the crag. The smooth water washed rock on this wall is excellent quality, but turns totally slick, damp and feral in the slightest humidity. Avoid in summer altogether.
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.
Access the 'Kwortzkliff' ledge by abseiling or dodgy downclimbing and head to Bob's Cliff end of the ledge where there are 3 sets of ring bolts for abseiling into the routes. The ring bolts do not always line up with the routes, so choose your abseil point with care.
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.
