Sissy Crag Bouldering Guide
All material contained on this page and any subpage is copyright © 2000 AustralianBouldering.com. All rights reserved.
Location: Turn off Warringah Rd, Forestville, into Ryrie Ave and then take the first left which is Bridgeview Crescent. Park at the end of Bridgeview Crescent and follow the track down the hill just right of the gate. The track doubles back and you'll come across a big south-west facing cave, this is it.
Problems: Only the most classic, obvious problems are described from left to right along the cliff and they don't adhere to any no matching or no heel-hooking rules. Specific beta is given using "L" to denote left-hand, "R" to denote R hand and "M" to denote match, only so far as to help understand where the problem starts (specific holds!) and finishes (always matched!) and as a guide for the easiest (original?) way to do the problem. Feel free to use any sequence (or holds) that you desire in-between.
