We probed spin-spin correlations up to 725 K with 63Cu nuclear quadrupole resonance in the S = 1 / 2 three-leg ladder Sr2Cu3O5. We present experimental evidence that below 300 K weak interladder coupling causes dimensional crossover of the spin-spin correlation length xi from the quasi-1D (xi approximately 1 / T) to the anisotropic 2D regime ( xi approximately exp2pirho(s) / T, where 2pirho(s) = 290+/-30 K is the effective spin stiffness).
