The Bluff is the impressive cliffs overlooking the lake that can be seen from the campsite. While not as tall as The Point, some great sport and trad lines have been established here (up to 3 pitches). Beautiful views from the top.
The Bluff can be subdivided into two main areas, The Lower Bluff & Upper Bluff.
From the campsite follow the track in the direction of the point (past the long drop). After 2-3 minutes a track breaks off sharply uphill. This leads to the first climbs of The Bluff (Aliens & Predator)
