Start just right of Turning of the Tide. Up past short corner and numerous breaks (natural gear) to headwall. Continue past several carrot bolts and a fixed hanger through the harder stuff. Seriously tricky up high.

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.
