The Poop Deck





Brown and Gold wall just north of Windjammer. Gently overhanging all the way with a mixt of climbing styles. The rock is solid but does have a few sandy spots that brush up well. There is a mix of Trad, Sport and Mixed routes. Well worth a visit for a day or two. Recently several good quality, well bolted sports routes have been added covering all grades.

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.


As for Windjammer but keep heading straight instead of right through the bushes.

Descent notes

Rapp in from a number of carrot bolt locations at the top of the cliff.

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.

Overlooked for so long as a destination cliff but now has enough quality sports routes for any Nowra di hard.

Sandy and poorly protected.

The fine, red diagonal crack with black streaks near the middle of the wall.

FFA: John Fantini & D. Morgan, 1989

Follow Nice orange rock with long moves between pockets. Spicy move at top.

FA: Tim Booth, Mar 2014

Line of rings up wall to the left of the diagonal crack. Follow the reddish streaks via some big funky moves to a last move crux.

FA: WillWatkins, 9 Mar 2013

Line of 3 bolts thru scoops and pockets to a powerful Nowra like crux. Great rock and wicked moves. Small cam in the top slot protects the last moves.

FA: Lucky Chance, 2009

Start below the dark flaring crack just right of Slutcats. Pass 3 carrot bolts to some cam placements and then one more carrot.

FA: Will watkins

Now has stainless steel carrot bolts to replace the old mank. Fun moves of pretty good rock. Cut slightly right to the last carrot and then up.

FFA: Ant Phren, 1990

Start at the thin crack (small wires) and then head directly up some great rock and moves past 3 more stainless carrots. Tricky first moves leads to sustained climbing on good holds. Holds thin out towards the top so keep moving.

FA: Will Watkins, 10 Mar 2013

Project - Jake Noblett. Drilled holes but no bolts yet.

The line of ringbolts starting up large R-facing flake. Good moderate climbing through solid rock to the sandy finale which will have you cursing.

FA: Jake Noblett, 9 Mar 2013

Line of 3 U-bolts up slightly sandy rock. Thread runner can be used between bolts 1 and 2.

FA: Lucky Chance, 2009

The parallel cracks at the R end of the Poop Deck. Begin in the one on the R. Strenuously, then carefully until hard, sustained jamming is reached. Pike L into the next sandy horror, then more easily to top.

Starts 3m right of the crack. This climb is basically two boulder problems divided by a sit down rest in the middle. Ideal for strong climbers with no endurance.

FA: Jake Noblett, 27 Apr 2013

Climb the chossy rooflet to good solid rock for the rest of the climb. Nice sustained climbing past plenty of bolts. Respect the small pebbles as you pass them as they will help you out.

FA: Jake Noblett, 3 Mar 2013

As for previous route but break right at 2nd bolt and climb past another 5-6 bolts on cool rock to an awesome, spicy finish on the arete.

FA: Jake Noblett, 3 Mar 2013
