Access issues

NOTE: When accessing 'Steep Side', please use the newly installed stile and do not damage the fence where it attaches to the rock. There was a recent encounter with Northern Beaches Council, so please exercise respect and discretion.

And don't park contrary to the signs in the RMS inspection bay.

Approach

The Narrabeen climbing area is located on the Wakehurst Parkway 700m west of the turn-off for the Sydney Academy of Sport. Heading away from Narrabeen you will pass the Academy of Sport with parking available on both sides of the road.

Heading towards Narrabeen, watch out for sign saying ‘Truck inspection station 1.5km’. The slabs are about 1.3km from that sign, at a right bend in the road. Look out for something that looks like a fire trail, then the locked gate to the slabs is just after that.

Narrabeen "Slabs" is accessed by following the path that starts at the locked gate on the right (just before the first sweeping lefthand corner). There is enough space on the road shoulder to park near the gate, or you can park in the large layby.

"Wakehurst Parkway Steep Side" is 200m further west on the left side of the road just before the steel fence. A faint track leads up to the crag.

See "The Academy" and Deep Creek bouldering areas for access descriptions.
