  <text class="heading1" new="false" id="1">Other Eastern Crags</text>
  <text class="text" new="false" id="2">This section contains information about other crags in the East of Tasmania for which we do not have full guides for, from north to south.</text>
  <text id="37" class="heading2">Bay of Fires - Binalong Bay</text>
  <text id="42" class="text">There are a few smaller climbs on the excellent granite of this area.</text>
  <climb id="38" stars="" extra="" number="" name="Ashley Big Fat Crack" length="7m" grade="18" fa="Ashley Mason, 1990&apos;s">South of Binalong Bay in Humbug Point Reserve at Grants Point. Go past a massive Australia shaped boulder, that you can just squeeze under if you are that way inclined, to a large buttress facing out to sea, with a wide crack, climb this crack. GDA 0611976 5432247.</climb>
  <climb id="41" stars="" extra="" number="" name="Gorky&apos;s Zygotic Mynchki" length="7m" grade="18" fa="Nick &amp; Heather Hancock, 2007.">200 m south of Grants Point is a collection of boulders half in the sea. At the northern end of these and back a bit from the sea, climb a north facing vertical seam to a horizontal, then a difficult bulge to finish. GDA 0612082 5432057.</climb>
  <climb id="39" stars="" extra="" number="" name="If Fingers Were Xylophones" length="7m" grade="22" fa="Nick &amp; Heather Hancock, 2006.">At Skeleton Point climb the south east facing short finger crack over the bulge. GDA 0611390 5432770.</climb>
  <climb id="40" stars="**" extra="" number="" name="Ruby in the Dust" length="10m" grade="22" fa="Nick &amp; Heather Hancock, Ashley Mason, 2007. ">Just south of the turn off for Sloop Rock, head down to the coast at the sign, Gardens 6. On a massive orange rock half in the sea. Abseil or scramble down to the seawashed north end and climb the lovely slab past 2 glued carrots. Mind numbingly thin for the grade! GDA 0607672 5436423.</climb>
  <text class="heading2" new="false" id="8">South Mt Cameron</text>
  <text class="text" new="false" id="9">South Mount Cameron, along the (B82) road off the Tasman Hwy, between Derby and Weldborough, has quite a bit of coarse grained granite. There are some reasonable sized faces, but no known routes. You could be the first.</text>
  <text id="53" class="heading2">Isle De Phoques</text>
  <text id="58" class="text">White granite island, climbs on steep east face finishing at trig point have been done. DWS in large caves.</text>
  <text class="heading2" new="false" id="3">Orford</text>
  <text class="text" new="false" id="4">Paradise Gorge at Orford has a number of established routes, but we don't have any details. Its surprising it hasn't been developed more as its only an hour from Hobart and extremely obvious. There are a number of short (10m or so) buttresses - next to the road, near the weir, and on the opposite side of the river. The most obvious buttress on the south side of the road has a couple of OK cracks and a hard face route with a carrot or two (or was it a piton?). Be very careful climbing near the highway - as there are plenty of loose rocks waiting to land on cars below.</text>
  <text id="56" class="heading2">Maria Island</text>
  <text id="59" class="text">The island offers both granite and dolerite climbing. The established ethic is to record no routes and save the island for the adventure. Please be sensitive to the environment on the other east coast islands as these summits are rarely visited by humans.</text>

 <text id="54" class="heading2">Visscher Island</text>
  <text id="60" class="text">Dolerite Columns in south facing amphitheater.</text>
  <text id="55" class="heading2">Visscher Rock</text>
  <text id="61" class="text">The rock is almost a sea stack if you look at it from the right angle, can be scrambled to summit via short loose corner on west side and slabs.</text>
  <text id="57" class="heading2">Cape Fredrick Henrick</text>
  <text id="62" class="text">Looks like beautiful choss because it is.</text>
  <text id="47" class="heading2">First Sister</text>
  <text id="48" class="text">First sister from the coast, possible to scramble to the top up loose gully on east side.</text>
  <text id="45" class="heading2">Elephant Sister</text>
  <text id="46" class="text">The second sister from the coast, good quality granite tower. Access by boat from pirates bay boat ramp.</text>
  <climb id="51" stars="" extra="" number="" name="Benny-Darren" length="35m" grade="20" fa="Daz and Ben Carter 27/2/2019">Hand Crack right of cave on south face.</climb>
