Point Perpendicular: My first trip to the sea cliffs

Tick it off the list! It took years and years but I’ve finally made the trip down to Point Perpendicular to sample the sea cliff climbing on offer.

 

Located on the Northern entry to Jervis Bay the views and atmosphere are absolutely stunning coupled with a mass of climbing on offer (over 500 routes!).

 

Access from atop of the cliffs and an abundance of routes in the teens means climbers of all skill levels can get involved to lead or just top dog like the best of them. I couldn’t recommend this place more to bring those newer to climbing to experience some solid exposure with the safety of a top belay.

 

It’s also a great option to relax with some easy climbing whilst soaking in the view, watching whales, taking some snaps, and hanging out with friends.

 

The only drawback from an inner city resident such as myself is the drive. It’s a 3 hour trip each way (six hours return) which means the call and grandeur of the Blue Mountains will always make it my favourite place to climb in New South Wales.

 

Point Perp is a great deviation from other local crags and the best place within driving distance of Sydney to experience the sea cliffs. Don’t do what I did and wait years and years, get down there sooner rather then later.
