Pt Perp mega offwidth?!?

Hey guys, last time I was down at the point I spied what looked to be some kind of mega-offwidth and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about it. The crack in question is in the lighthouse enclosure, and if memory serves it's on the wall to the right of the northern exposure wall (i.e. starting from the same ledge but on the wall at 90 degrees to that one and to the right looking towards the cliff). The wall is slightly overhanging the whole way and the crack size looks very consistent, starting out a bit offset to one side and changing to offset the other way at around half height. I couldn't find any info about it in either the 2001 guide, the SRC updates or the ACA route register, but it's such an obvious feature that it must have bee climbed. So has anyone done it, or know anything?

Anyway, I'm heading down to Pt Perp for the ANZAC day long weekend, so I'll be able to get a closer look. Such an awesome place. Are the rumours true that someone is working on a new guidebook?

It's been climbed a few times - but i can't remember by who or when. Certainly I've seen a trip report or some photos of it in the last 6 months somewhere online...

Any idea where you saw this trip report, or how to find it? Any idea what sort of rack might be required?

Thanks

I'm sure it was on this website - or maybe flickr

Could this be it?

The overhanging offwidth in the wall adjacent to Northern Exposure.
The gear was as follows 4 cam, 4 cam, 4.5 cam, and a sky hook in the break on the left weighted with
a cam! Be careful.

Thanks Dalai, I must have missed it because it's not in the topos. Now I just need to gather the big cams...

A friend and I did it about 6 years ago, great fun route, you don't need any of the above gear all you need is some lumps of wood from the local camp ground and wedge them in and then sling them. easy
