  <header id="1" name="South Sister" autonumber="true" camping="" walk="10 mins" sun="" rock="Vertical dolerite buttresses, up to 25m" intro="Situated at the eastern end of the Nicholas Range, above St. Marys lies South Sister, a beautiful rocky peak rising to 832m, with transmission masts and fire tower on top. Typical dolerite crags abound on the mountain offering some excellent climbs, with a strong emphasis on cranking cracks, as well as some varied routes. The rock is generally sound, and existing routes are clean, but care should still be taken of loose rock. Most routes are naturally protected, so a full rack including hexs and cams is necessary. As the crags face different directions the decision where to climb may depend on: weather conditions, time of year, and time of day. West facing crags are best in summer, especially afternoons, whereas the eastern facing crags are good any time, especially in winter, when the cold westerlies whistle over the top of the mountain and the rock is bathed in winter sun, it is generally dry, though not recommended during an easterly. The crags have a friendly atmosphere, are a great place to perfect your jamming skills and are a good training ground for longer routes, as many cracks are single pitch yet sustained. On a clear day, views of the east coast from Freycinet to Flinders Islands, The Fingal Valley and the mountains of the North East can be gained. The flora, fauna, geology, etc. are fascinating, but that&apos;s another story, enjoy this magical place and stay safe." history="To my knowledge, South Sister was first visited by climbers in the early 80&apos;s by K Bischoff and A Wing then later in 1984 when the party R McMahon, G Narkowicz, D Kearnes, &amp; H Mohler etc. led some excellent lines on the largest east facing buttress; Canyon Buttress. The mountain may have received visits after this initial period, but its climbing potential was rediscovered in Autumn 1995 by myself, P Wines &amp; P Witton, accessing new crags, cleaning cracks, and putting up new routes. Many undescribed lines and problems have been top-roped, due to lack of placements or too hard." acknowledgement="by Ashley Mason, originally published in Craglets." access="Access from St.Marys is via Gardiners Creek Rd (past the hospital), turn right at the crossroads (left is back to highway), up and along Top Marshes Rd for about 3km, and turn left up to South Sister lookout. All outcrops are described in an anticlockwise direction around the mountain, from the main track, and climbs from left to right. From the end of the road, follow the main track. The first outcrop up to the right is &quot;Carpark Buttress&quot;, leave the track when level with it (cairn). "/>
