Description

The Town Cliffs as the name suggests are closer to Currarong town than the other Point Perp climbing areas. The Town Cliffs are not accessed via the Beecroft Weapons Range, and as such are accessible even when the Range is closed.

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.

Approach

Approach along the firetrail which starts at 30 Crookhaven Pde, Currarong. For all crags it's at least 1km along a firetrail; this is good for mountain bikes if you'd rather not walk. Follow the firetrail east for 300m to the water reservoir, and continue another 500-600m to a sharp left turn in the firetrail. Individual crag access differs from this point.

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.
