  <header id="1" name="Sisters Beach" walk="10-20 minutes" sun="" rock="Quartzite" acknowledgement="By Ben Thorp" intro="Long overlooked for rope lovers, there is actually quite a lot of bouldering in the vicinity of the climbing area at Sisters Beach.  The rock is super hard quartzite, the lines are steep and the landings pretty good.  So far there are about 2030 problems but there is potential for many more.  " history="Some of these problems were climbed back on 2012 but I&apos;ve been pretty slack writing them up!  The rest were added recently with Moses Bassett.  Hopefully some more locals will develop the rest of the area." access="The Sea Side Boulders and the Corruption Wall Boulders are accessed as for the climbing area.  To get to the Cove, head down to the coast from the Dog Wall then follow the coast around for about 500 metres or so." camping="" autonumber="true"/>

As the name suggests this boulder is partially submerged at high tide. However at low tide it provides quite a few good quality problems, with a harder project or two still to be done on the NW side.</text>
