Description

The crag was spotted early in 2002 by Rod Wills during a ridge walk for bouldering spots. Rescouted by Rod and Stephen Hawkshaw in July 2002, when it was decided it would provide a good number of routes. 'The Stables' & 'otherland' are located in Sydney's north west. Most of the cliffs range from 8-10m's , mostly sport.

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales.

Approach

Drive to the end of Schofield Pde, Pennant Hills.

Park at the gate signposted "Berowra Valley National Park, Stringy Bark Trail". Walk past the disability services facility for 100m to a track on the left. Follow this for approximately 200m till it heads right towards the oval. Instead of heading right go more or less straight ahead for 50m and there is a rock cairn (?). Turn left and head through scrub to top of little rocky section. Zig down this section till you arrive on the top of a cliff, walk right to a gully. Head down this and you come out onto Cave Wall. There are numerous other ways of getting here this just seems to be the easiest.

For 'Otherland', instead of turning down initial track follow fire trail past oval and down the hill. After about 300-400 metres past the oval, turn left on faint track to top of cliff. 'Access' easiest down left side (ie if facing cliff).
