Access issues inherited from Glasshouse Mountains
Most 'Glasshouse Mountains' climbing is within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Please respect the environment and other people's enjoyment of it. Access to climbing here is a privilege, not a right.
The Sentinels are situated awa from the main Mt Ngungun areas so a different access road is used. After crossing the railway line in the Glass House Mountains twonship, turn right into Coonowrin Road at the T-junction. Follow this around left into Railway Parade, then turn left onto Sahara Road and follow this. A large chocolate brown slab is visible high on the hill. This is 'The Hidden Slabs'. However, 'The Sentinels' is the white section of cliff partly visible through the trees to the left of 'The Hidden Slabs', above the old quarry. At 1.4 km along Sahara Road, turn left into Springburn Drive, then take a quick right on to Stonehaven Lane and follow this to the top. Turn left and drive up to the quarry fence to park. Follow the fence rightwards and then follow a vague track up through the scrub to locate 'The Sentinels'.
Ethic inherited from Glasshouse Mountains
Modern climbers establishing new routes have taken great pains to ensure any new routes do not interfere with the historic routes established many decades ago.
Retro-bolting of existing routes is unacceptable!
New routes shall make use of traditional protection where available.
