Usually a few fisherman around but a decent wall with potential for quite a few low grade climbs.
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.
Nice and easy. Park at the lighthouse parking and about a 1km walk to the cliff. To get to the base of the wall, just head down the stairs and around the rocks until you are on the waterside.
Wander through the scrub to get back to the path at the top of the stairs.
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.
Very popular fishing location so can be abit messy (probably why there has been no recorded climbs here) but with the addition of bins and a toilet before the stairs, this has the potential to be a good low grade wall.
