Feature image: Three hours south of Sydney, the majestic 300-foot-high sandstone sea cliffs at Point Perpendicular present a playground with miles of cliffline above the churning sea. The Point yields some 500 routes from short sporty pump fests to multi-pitch trad epics; most somewhat split the difference. In this image Monique Forestier fights lactic acid on the roof Footloose and Fancy Free (22/5.11b). Although a sport climb, Footloose requires a committing rappel to a ledge. Ocean, sky, roof and complete seclusion.
