Description:

The left arete of Windjammer Wall. Incredible climbing up one the best aretes at Point Perp. Start on the right side of the arete on high small ledge. Climb the face to the right of the arete for 20m, then left onto arete proper and finish with spicy gritstone like funk. Lots of carrot bolts which are supplemented by occasional medium sized cams. This was originally climbed onsight with no bolts (!) and was later "accidentally" retrobolted.

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.
