6 good sport climbs and assorted trad
Park at the last u bend before the car park at the main south sister area, follow the thin track towards the obvious rocky outcrop, climbs start at the first face then follow around the north of the crag.
The first sport route you see, on the part of the buttress facing the ocean. Nice climbing up a sharp layback flake to DBB. Rock is a bit suspect and rock around last U bolt has half broken away.

Slice n Dice
This short route, on the pillar below LS, packs a real punch. Slap and span your way up the opposing aretes. Take care clipping. DBB.
