This crag is unlocked for editing, and its areas are locked. Area additions are allowed
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 is located in Sydney's north west and is currently under development. Most of the cliffs range from 8-10m's on varying quality rock. It is hoped about 15-20 routes will eventually be done.
Location:The Stables is located in the Sydney's north west. Drive to the end of Schofield Pde, Pennant Hills. Park near sign, walk through gate for 100m till 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 and scramble to the bottom of some rocks. Follow the rock along until it gets to about 3m in height. Look left and there are two smooth gum trees in a small break. 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).
