Summary

A crag that constantly changes?!

Description

A little cove known as Blanche Point between Maslin Beach and Port Willunga with nice bouldering. Crag is ordered South to North, as per approach.

NOTE: 95% of the lines established at the first wall are now gone due to Winter storms. A large block under the roof has fallen off destroying all of the lines on the overhanging wall. Lines are left up for historical purposes.

Access issues

The main wall is tidal dependant as it can't be accessed on the incoming tide. Access is at low tide. You need to make sure you're out before the tide starts rising. Leave it too late and you'll be swimming out! The smaller walls are accessible all day long. This includes walls with climbs such as 'Heel Hook That Wave', 'Heart Shaped Wave' & 'Soul Surfer'.

Approach

Park at Blanche Point Car Park. Follow the trail down the dunes to the beach and head right around the corner until you reach the point. During low tide you will be able to rock jump to get to the wall.

Where to stay

BIG 4 Port Willunga Tourist Park is around the corner, on Tuit Rd.

Ethic

Anything you take in you take out with you. Don't leave rubbish behind and clean off all tick marks. Be friendly to the onlookers and surfers.
