  <header id="1" autonumber="true" camping="" access="The developed crags are on publicly owned Forestry and Crown land. The public land extends as far south as the Panopticon, but further south than that it&apos;s private. The range of hills to the north of the Colosseum is the southern boundary of the Buckland Military Training Area - stay out! Please don&apos;t jeopardise access by exploring, climbing or developing on private land without previously negotiating access with the landowners. To get there:&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;1. Drive to Buckland, about 60km NE of Hobart on the A3, then turn left on the C318. After 3km, turn turn right onto Sand River Rd. About 8km along this the road takes a sharp left land turn, with some dirt tracks coming off it. This take a bit under an hour from Hobart.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;2. Take the right hand sandy track.  If you have the clearance drive along this for another 500m to a flat clear parking area before it heads down hill, otherwise park at the start. Don&apos;t block the roads. &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;3. For the Firewall area, walk down the old fire trail for about 50m, and then follow a red taped track off left through the bracken then down the spur line (as for the Colosseum). The spur ends at the top of a small cliff (Riverside) just above the river. The left side of the Firewall area is visible about 100m to the north (left as you face downhill). The red taped track to the Colosseum descends to the river to the north of Riverside. Part way along this descent, a yellow taped track leads about 100 metres across north to the Firewall. Overall it’s about a ten minute walk from the car park. You can also head straight downhill down the gully from the car park to arrive on the west end of the Firewall.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;4. For the Colosseum area, walk down the old fire trail for about 50m, and then follow a taped track off left through the bracken and down the spur line, passing  Riverside Crag near the valley floor. The track then turns back north up the river for about a kilometre through the dense forest which is surprisingly easy walking. Once you&apos;re down in the river bed you can&apos;t see much, but you will get glimpses of the west facing slabby cliffs up to the right. Keep following the tapes upstream to where the cliff changes direction to face north, and take the right fork of the stream. Cross the stream and follow the tapes up the hill, arriving under the massive roof of Crossing the Rubicon, about 35-40 mins walk from the car.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;5. The Panopticon is in the next valley to the south of the Colosseum, to the SE of the parking area. Walk down the old logging track from the car park right down till the track turns to the right. Veer off left and follow a taped line down to the creek and then straight up the hillside the other side to the base of the cliff. The crag is the first major buttress to the left, about 30 mins walk from the car. " history="" intro="Sand River was discovered in 2017 and has yielded many good routes on some of the best sandstone in Tasmania. Yes, that&apos;s not saying much, but the rock here is surprisingly good. The crags are mostly north facing and sheltered from the wind, and are relatively warm and dry in winter. This area provides the best reliable winter climbing in the south of the state. However, avoid easterly wet weather. There is only very limited phone reception at any of the crags.... and no water.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Please leave any fixed or stashed gear exactly as you found it - it all belongs to someone working hard to develop the crag.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Please Note: there are many obvious bird roosts on the cliffs, and Peregrine Falcons and Wedge Tail Eagles frequent the area. If you spot a Peregrine or Eagle nest, keep at least 250m away, and let the climbing community know on or the CCT facebook group." acknowledgement="" rock="Sandstone 10 - 30m high." sun="Sunny" walk="10 - 50 minutes." name="Sand River"/>

  <text class="text" id="8">From the main road take the left fork for a few hundred metres to an open area. This quite small crag is downhill to the left. There are no routes here yet, but there is potential for a couple of small ones, and it's quite close to the car.</text>
  <text class="heading2" id="3">The Firewall</text>
  <text class="text" id="4">The Firewall is a beautiful little crag of steep red and orange rock. Its north-easterly aspect sees sun until mid-afternoon, and the crag is sheltered from strong winds. It doesn’t rain much in the area, but when it does most of the routes are steep enough that both the climbs and belay areas stay dry (although sections of the cliff may seep after prolonged heavy rain).&lt;br/&gt;With a comfortable flat belay areas, a concentration of routes at a range of grades, and its relative closeness to Hobart, the Firewall is a great winter sport climbing crag.&lt;br/&gt;Follow the taped track from the parking area (this track continues to the Colosseum).

  <text class="heading2" id="5">Riverside Crag</text>
  <text class="text" id="6">Riverside Crag is a series of short walls to the south of the junction of Sand River and the fork that heads up towards the Colosseum. You pretty much go past the northern end of it on the current taped track to the Colosseum. It's a bit shadier and mossier than the other crags, but there is potential for several good routes here, and it's not that far from the car.</text>
  <text class="heading2" id="9">The Colosseum</text>

  <text class="text" id="59">To the south of the Colosseum, about 50m or so right of the Black Sector over a bracken covered scree, is the Plebeian's Wall, featuring steep, clean rock with some excellent routes. A taped line through the bracken on the left of the Wall leads up to the cliff top.&lt;br/&gt;The area has been developed by a commune of Plebs aka Stu Scott, Tony McKenny, Al Beech, Dave Stephenson, Ivan Riley, Neale Smith, Ben Maddison, and others who have all shared in the onerous tasks of cleaning, equipping and belaying the routes to date, and who have in most cases added a signature route of their own as well. &lt;br/&gt;The left hand end of the wall has climbs 20 to 25m high while further right the cliff is broken by a ledge at half height. A smaller wall, Minions Wall, continues further right again&lt;br/&gt;The first route takes a line up the steep prow, left of an orange face.&lt;br/&gt;</text>

Starts a couple of metres right of WCH and takes a direct line up the steep glassy wall, finishing leftward via the under-cling.&lt;br/&gt;Alternative finish: instead of completing the under-cling left, bridge up through the overhang directly, clipping the bolt off right (not visible from below). From a large jug out left on the lip, weave a way up and back right to finish at the rap station. Quite exciting but maybe not as good as the original.</climb>
