The Point is truly one of the wildest, most beautiful, and most exciting places I have ever had the opportunity to climb at. The heavy seas we experienced pounded the cliffs below with thunderous explosions, throwing sea spray from the undercut rock. At one point a giant rolling wave drenched my feet, creating a mildly unsettling situation. The guidebooks note that some are lucky enough to see giant tortoises and other large sea life below you as you climb; we were not that lucky. Though we did see nesting Brown Boobie Birds and their fuzzy white chicks, as well as soaring Frigatebirds, also known as Men ’O War. Please be considerate of these creatures, as the Brown Boobie is a protected and rare species.
From Asthton Reid (aka Crossover Road), head east on the Major Donald Drive (aka Lighthouse Road). Follow this road about 6 miles (10 km) until it ends at the lighthouse. Follow the nature trail that heads toward the water and to the left for about 100m to where there is a cairn on the right side of the trail. From this cairn you can look straight out to the edge and see some bushes and palm trees, to the right of which is the route “The Devil Wears Flippers”.
