Name:
Sisyphean Ridge
Description:

Roughly parallels the Moffitts Trail on the west and Zeus Ridge on the east, and both sides contain tributaries of Jews Creek. It is just one kilometre in length, trending north east. The name reflects the Greek mythological references of the ridges to the east, Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. Sisyphus was a Greek Titan who was condemned eternally to roll a huge stone up a hill that rolled back as soon as it reached the top. The name was applied to this ridge after observing a massive chock stone that stands poised to crash into the valley below, Sisyphus Rock is the highest point at GR 276 187. So named on a Bush Club walk, 25th July 2011 by Adrian Cooper, a bush walker and canyoner.
