The first arête right of the lighthouse fence. Excellent protection. Find the 2 carrot bolts at the top and abseil down the middle of the face until you reach a small ledge about 5 metres above the half way ledge. There is a 2 carrot bolt belay at this ledge. Climb the arête past cam breaks and 7 carrot bolts. Go left around the arête at the difficult sections near the bottom and top. Clip the last bolt from around the arête. Take a long sling for the thread runner near the top.

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.
