Access issues inherited from Point Perpendicular

Point Perp is located within a Navy Weapons Range and is closed on most weekdays for live fire exercises. It is generally open only on weekends and during NSW school holidays, but even at these times access can be restricted due to crowding and the limited amount of car parking within the range. In peak season the entrance gates can therefore be closed for hours at a time until the range empties out again; at these times consider starting early to beat the rush. At all times of the year, it is best to ring the rangers to check accessibility before you go (02 4448 3411), to avoid the risk of being turned away.

If the range is closed you can always go to the Town Cliffs, accessed from Currarong.

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 some routes require you to bring up to a dozen keyhole hangers.

Pitch 1. Start on the left hand side of the large block 20m R of Dreams and Visions. Climb straight up through the 'dinner plates' to hanging belay at obvious horizontal 2m below RB. The rock on this pitch is surprisingly solid and the gear is sufficient. Doubles in camalots 3 & 4 are useful. Pitch 2 (crux). Climb straight up past bolt and medium cams (.75 camalot on R after bolt) to gain the arete just below where rock quality starts to deteriorate. Roll over arete to join Dreams and Visions to finish.
