Crag features

Stunning cliff jutting out from the northern base of mitre peak into Milford sound. Beautiful granite faces and slab coming straight out of the sea. 

Copper Point juts out into the Sound and constricts the sea breeze so it can get blowy. On the plus side, this often keeps the sandflies away. Wind shells, long sleeves, long thin socks you can climb in and insect repellent are all a good idea.

Approach notes

Accessed via sea to the point, it is recommended that you travel to and from Copper Point in the early morning if you are in personal craft as the sea breeze during the day makes travel difficult and sometimes dangerous.
All routes can be accessed directly from the water. a single ring-bolt is placed above the high tide mark so climbers can clip in and sort gear after disembarking.You can also Rap in to all routes and climb back out if you are at Copper Point for multiple days without a vessel. Closest good camping is at Bridal Veil Falls beach, 1km west. Moraine Beach, 3km west, also offers camping plus more climbing. By sea-kayak it is about 2 hours from Deep Water Cove. Try Roscos Sea Kayaks for water taxi options (this should be organised by email beforehand) .

The Track off the top is well cut and marked(pink) back to camp/beach. It will take about 1 hour to walk back to the beach.
There are two turn-offs to the Boaty Mc Boat face and Titanic along the way which are marked in Orange tape.
