Summary

Sisters Beach is a excellent little crag with a collection of high quality routes on quartzite. WARNING: DODGY BOLTS (see below)

Description

Sisters Beach is a beach in North West Tasmania which shares the same name as the nearby town. The beach has white sand and is 3 kilometres long.

WARNING: THERE HAVE BEEN MULTIPLE INCIDENTS OF U BOLTS FAILING AT THIS CLIFF. ALL U BOLTS ARE SUSPECT INCLUDING BELAY BOLTS. SEVERAL ROUTES HAVE BOLTS REMOVED. DO NOT USE FIXED PROTECTION. TRADITIONAL CLIMBING ONLY UNTIL BOLT REPLACEMENT IS COMPLETED (Hopefully this summer 17/18, will update here when complete).

Access issues

National Park so standard permits apply.

Approach

The town of Sisters Beach is easily accessible from the Bass Highway, about 30 minutes drive West of Burnie. From the General Store, head East along a rough dirt track near the beach until it ends (1.5km, fine for 2wd). Park here and follow the Postman's Track for 100m, then turn L onto unmarked climber's track. Follow this for 10 minutes and you will emerge below the Keyhole. Continue L for another 50m to reach Fly Buttress, or climb up and through the Keyhole, then down and L to Corruption Wall
