Some fun routes worth a visit or two." name="The Stables" rock="" sun="Crags face generally west" id="1" access="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 easist. For Otherland, instead of turning down the intial track follow the fire trail past the oval and down the hill. About 300-400 metres past the oval, turn left on a faint track to gain the top of the cliff. Access is easiest down the left side (facing the cliff).
