Classic 'no-star' routes at Point Perp 27-Oct-2014 At 8:18:18 AM nmonteith
I'll start the ball rolling with two routes on the far left end of Windjammer Wall, just around the corner from the classic arete of Turning the Tide.

Sunset Boulevard (24)
Awesome sustained wall climbing on great quality polished rock. All ringbolts, but they are spaced and rather exciting, but falls are clean. This route has no boring juggy choss lower section - it's on from the first move all the way to the top of the cliff. It's probably a sandbag at 24 - I've done all the other 24s on Windjammer in 1 or two shots but this took me a lot more! A real classic. Three stars.

Vertical Romance (25)
Even better than Sunset Boulevard? Amazing layback flake to start then unrelenting steep wall with lots of really funky moves around bulges. This climbs more like a Nowra route in many ways - again there is no boring juggy choss section and no ledges or major rests. Very sustained and the two cruxes are tough. All ringbolts again and fairly spicy bolting up high. This is probably the best 'hard route' I have tried at Point Perp. Three stars.

Both these routes get no stars and a cobwebby in the guide. WTF?
