Description

Don't climb on the sea side of the gully, too many fishermen.

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

Nice and easy. Park at the lighthouse parking and about a 1km walk to the cliff. To get to the base of the wall, just head down the stairs and around the rocks until you are on the waterside.

Descent notes

Wander through the scrub to get back to the path at the top of the stairs.

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.

History

View historical timeline

Very popular fishing location so can be a bit messy (probably why there has been no recorded climbs here) but with the addition of bins and a toilet before the stairs, this has the potential to be a good low grade wall.

Grade Route

Follow the dark grey splotch straight up the wall. Grade may be off, I'm not a route climber (boulderer, sue me...), just going on other things I've solo'd around here.
